Dulce is a short 3D animated film that explores the loving relationship between mother and daughter while balancing the heavy concept of death.
The film was created by Aleyda Ortiz, Lok Cheang, and Kevin Class.
A mother and daughter decide to take a break on the field.
The daughter, Aurora, wakes up from her nap, contemplating a question.
Curiosity gets the best of her and she blurts out to her mother "What is Death?"
Her mother is surprised at first,
however, she goes on to explain what and who death is.

The Theme
Dulce’s overall theme is Memento Mori, the inevitability of death.
However, Dulce’s take on the theme is light in contrast to the context.
