Raven Tales. How Raven Stole the Sun

Raven Tales: How Raven Stole the Sun is an animated film based on a First Nations folklore of the Northwest coast. Frog tells Raven and Eagle about an old man who keeps the sky, the stars, the moon and the light of the world in a set of boxes by the river. Raven transforms himself into a spruce needle and is swallowed by the old man's daughter. Raven grows inside the girl until he is born as a Raven-child. He persuades the old man to open the boxes, until one is remaining. Raven reveals his true identity and escapes through the smoke-hole. As he ascends into sky with the sun, Raven awakens the plants and animals.
