The animated short film Zodiac Run combines Chinese mythology and art with music. Twelve different animals compete against each other in a frantic foot race. The smallest animal is the mouse, but its determination and vitality outweighs its size disadvantage. The film has a fast tempo of narration, as the visuals sync with music by composer Kabalewski and radiate vigour and freshness. The animals, coloured in white, red and black, contrast the landscape, which is shown in blue-grey shades.
