Short Film: Ascension

"Ascension" is an animation short film with excellent comedic timing.  Created by a group of five students at Supinfocom as their graduation film, Ascension tells the story of two accident-prone climbers determined to carry a statue of the Virgin Mary to the peak of a treacherous mountain.

Alternating somber sequences of heroic resolve with slapstick hilarity, the film is an uplifting tale of friendship in the face of adversity reminiscent of Disney's classic Goofy short films.  Rounding the film out is a series of jaw-dropping environments that make this a seriously amazing film.
"In beginning of the 20th century, two climbers carry a statue of the Virgin to the top of a mountain."
