Script: Hund & Horn

 

Hund & Horn dedicate a four part film series to the existence of humans under absurd circumstances. Part 3, Mouse Palace, replaces humans with cute rodents. Mice live, romp around, and eat all day in a structure modeled in detail after a living space made entirely out of food. The nutritious apartment sinks increasingly into chaos due to the rampant lifestyle of its inhabitants. Deterioration appears to be an inevitable consequence of the blatant drive to eat.
