Haunted by nightmares, Teagran tries everything he can to ritually resurrect his dead father in this superbly animated stop-motion short film.

In his kitchen, overgrown with plants and vines, a man keeps his dead father. Tormented by dreams, he tries several rituals to bring him back to life. Based on a dream and using uniquely hand-carved wooden puppets, designed and animated by Lyle Pisio Haiku 4: STILL is the fourth in a series of short animations in collaboration with different artists. In Still, Lyle worked with the Calgary-based musician, poet, and comic-book artist Jun K. Lee who dreamed up the story, the poetry and the music for the film.
