Celebrate Easter with the launch of The Tale of the Bravest Warrior , the latest film by American video and performance artist Erica Schreiner . Featuring an adorable chick, Schreiner's new piece reveals the trials and tribulations of life as an egg. Created using a vintage analog VHS video camera, the film’s faded hues and domestic opening scenes evoke an innocent nostalgia. A running tap fills a pan, eggs are put inside it and beautiful roses are placed on the surface of the water. Yet the tranquil scenes are soon disturbed. ‘In The Tale of the Bravest Warrior , the eggs go through several traumas,' explains Schreiner.
