Misery Loves Company

Animated short film

Sasha LEE[South Korea]


Min, a high school student, is lying on the grass and looking at the stars with her friends. A shooting star falls, and dark and intrusive thoughts—“We will lose in touch after graduation,” “I don’t know any hot places or hipster indie music, I will just rot, watching YouTube at home”—hit her. She wishes a giant meteorite to fall and end the world. The depression that all of us are familiar with are illustrated in colorful images and pop music.
