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.
Wait at the end wouldn’t he ate it and then die? It’s so sad but I love the flute music it makes me tired my emotions while watching this: 🙂 :0 😐 😦 😭
