Hollow Land (Clip 1)

Hollow Land (Clip 1)

This animated short is a story about the eternal search for home. Hollow Land begins, as all such searches must, with the dream of utopia. Solomon and Berta are two seekers who arrive—their treasured bathtub improbably in tow—in a land that promises respite from their many journeys. From the first optimistic moments after their arrival, to the final haunting scene at sea, Hollow Land captures the state of being displaced—whether by circumstance or by choice.

    Utopia: Greek "ou" not + "topos" place. Rife with symbolism of cultural idiosyncracies. Boldly fresh style of claymation and animation. I liked the theme of water connecting all the scenarios (except the beach portage).
