[mu:stərman] - a flood story
animation installation, 17min loop
a cityscape in which Western-European Animals inhabit an eco-social housing estate. When the rising tide is flowing in and floods their homes completely, they do not act surprised or scared: They just go with the flow, for it is an endlessly repeated story.
Direction/Animation: Maarten Isaäk de Heer
Animation Assistance: Annika Huskamp
