Ruben Leaves

Animated short film

Frederic SIEGEL [Switzerland]


This 2D animation is set in contemporary Britain. On his way to work, Ruben is haunted by obsessive-compulsive thoughts. Is the front door locked? Is the stove really turned off? As Ruben’s creative mind is invaded by increasingly absurd scenarios, reality and imagination begin to merge. The highly graphical animated film was created using only three carefully selected colors.
