More about the film

Musical Traumas came to fruition as the result of the director's obsession with music schools. It is a rhythmic compilation of traumatic, but amusing confessions of former students, as well as an attempt to visualise music with scrumptious, hand-drawn animation. The experiences may be documentary, but the image comes straight from the world of musical impressions.
