A distracted driver hits and mortally injures an equally distracted stag on a moonlit, rural road. Artemis, Apollo, and the Ghost of Elvis all appear in this incident that repeats itself over a million times a year an American roads and highways. ‘Artemis’ is an experimental stop motion animation walking the hedges between Fantasy, Science Fiction, and Horror, and explores a polytheistic view of the rural American landscape.
