The Sunset Special

The Sunset Special is an audiovisual multimedia project, centered around an animated short film. The project deals with the effects of reality distorting imagery and narrative spread by social media and advertisement through new technologies. It examines their connection to nostalgia, desires, and wanderlust and deconstructs the perfectly customized, digital products: The idea of the unique trip, the perfect partner, the ideal life... Set in a world of luxury, travel and abundance The Sunset Special plays a game with the superficiality these products and worlds incorporate.

World premiere at Locarno Film Festival in August 2021
Screened at Festival du nouveau cinema Montreal 2021
German premiere at Shortfilmfestival Cologne 2021
