OUR WONDERFUL NATURE
Germany / 2008 / 6'
In this amusing and unusual animation short, we watch the amazing adventures of a water shrew. The film investigates some of this small water mammal’s social habits, which are similar to some human behaviours. Using 3D animation, the author shows on the stage a “matrix” style duel between the two pretenders for the conquest of the female water shrew. A sophisticated parody of nature documentary films.
