Life’s a Bitch

Animated short film

Varya YAKOVLEVA[Russia]


The work depicts a man living on a bench on a railway platform. The man himself tells the story of how he lost his foot when run over by a tractor and became homeless because he could not work, his once fulfilling life, and his hopes for how he’d like to be buried. The helpless feelings of why his life has become what it is today are conveyed through the depiction of passersby and passing trains that show no interest in him.
