A hunter seeks solace in the mountains when his sweetheart takes another. His dark side begins to show through his desperation and drives him to find the mythical Goldhorn. This dark Slovenian legend comes to life in vibrant colours and original sounds.

This legend from the Julian Alps where she grew up, provided the inspiration for Lea Vučko´s debut film. The story of love and greed in this old folktale is timeless. In a style reminiscent of Van Gogh, this animation film depicts a time when man, nature and the supernatural were all interconnected. Ultraviolet and infrared both exist, we just cannot see them. Just like dark feelings.


This film won first prize for the best animation film at the Slovenian film festival and the film festival of Nepal.

In the library in HUB.Kerkrade, the original drawings that Lea Vučko made for this film will be displayed. Some of them can even come to life using augmented reality.
