A benign scene at a sushi restaurant quickly descends into an indictment of marine plastic pollution in this excellent short by Canada-based animator PoChien-Chen, inspired by a visit to a small Taiwanese island two years ago, of which he sez:
It was the closest I’d lived to the sea, being only a 10 minute drive away. Everyone can enjoy the beach with its white sand and turquoise ocean. At the time, I went snorkeling almost every week. Seeing such alluring tropical fish and coral reefs sill lingers in my mind. However, I also cannot forget the scenes of tons of human waste lying around the shore as if it were a part of nature.
A minimalist short by London-based animator David Zamorano featuring a sniper holding out with his captured prisoner during the downfall of a nuclear conflict – a take on the absurdity of war and the maddening stress of isolation and loneliness.
