Synopsis


In a heavily polluted world, a young woman mourns the disappearance of animal species. We see her go against the stream of the indifferent masses, and make daily visits to the museum of natural history to make drawings of the ever increasing number of extinct animal species. Her considerate character doesn’t protect her from a bacterial infection when a global pandemic strikes. When her health deteriorates, nature appears to send her a message in her hallucinations.

Arjan Brentjes


Arjan Brentjes (1971, Gorinchem, Netherlands) started his career as a painter, and in 2008 he switched to moving images. Since 2010, he has been dedicated to making short films, mostly animation lately. Arjan often takes the viewer back to a visual style from the past, to look at our present or future from there, thereby wittily commenting on the development of our technological society and the haughtiness of man.
