animate! synopsis

Strangers on a train, points on a journey through the ‘accepted nature of things‘. Fast talking animation scratches the surface of our familiarity as we question the answers we’ve been offered.

long synopsis

”Naked came I out of my mothers womb and naked shall I return” Job 1.21 Scrutiny questions the accepted ‘nature of things’ – birth, sex, marriage, death and DIY.

Rapid fire animation, fidgeting on the film’s surface, challenges us to make sense of it, while the contrasting live action lulls us into a false sense of familiarity. A journey is depicted, taking us through the heart of of the country and ending amidst the seemingly chaotic life of a city.
