Amnesia

Animation, AT 2017, 10 min, OmeU
Program: Innovatives Kino Programm 2

A latex figure from a distant planet in the far expanses of the universe; raving, hungry, and trapped in an inner monologue. Shadab Shayegan designs an impressively profound reflection on loneliness, loss, and mania with minimalist drawings and bizarre puppet animations: amnesia as a metaphor for the futile search for answers to life’s existentialist questions.
