Short, surprising and always entertaining! Watch a collection of one-minute animated shorts from our Hothouse animation mentorship program, past and present.

Details

This short animation film is a pithy critique of society's commercialization of water, abetted by an utter disregard for the future. The film is a mixed media whirlwind of hyperactive animated collage.

Produced as part of the first edition of the NFB’s Hothouse apprenticeship. Theme was "Water and Our Relationship to It".
