The film Tabula Rasa is a paraphrase of Aesop’s fable The Fox and the Stork and a short study of human behaviour. In terms of style, it is an adaptation of a theatrical piece into a film, following the classic three-act structure. The scene is free of props, while the characters’ bodies and motions depict the space surrounding them and define the action, without dialogue but enhanced with sound. An occasional narrator’s voice in the background confronts our objective knowledge about the origins of mankind with the artificial images of two caricatured characters.
