Nothing you need to see
Animated short film
ITO Keigo [Japan]
This hand-drawn animation thematizes what we are looking at in everyday life. Created using pencils, pastels, and oil paints, the drawn pictures were then shot with a digital camera and spliced together as video. Set on a fantasy train representing a kind of mental landscape, a young man shuts himself off from the outside world by reversing his face so he does not see anything, while another man silently stuffs garbage into the face.
