Video: “Nuggets” (a short animated film about addiction)

This short animated film by Andreas Hykade, the Director of the Animation and Visual Effects program at Germany’s Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg, is a fable about addiction. Things start off innocuously, with a kiwi taking a casual stroll down a road, eventually encountering and tasting some golden nuggets. The nuggets are delicious, it turns out, too delicious to resist. Then things take a dark turn. Hykade says that he created the film for adolescents who might be tempted one day to take drugs or engage in other destructive behaviors.
