Sensory Itch

Director: Roel van Beek
When Sarah is stung by a nettle, she tries not to scratch the lump. But when the daily annoyances mount in this short animation, the urge becomes irresistible.
After a nasty nettle sting, Sarah finds out that scratching gives her relief and at the same time has disastrous consequences. When the itch worsens due to small, everyday annoyances - and vice versa – she can hardly control herself anymore. Where will this end? Of course, the fact that Sarah gets stung on the very moment she grabs her phone is no coincidence. In a miniature story, this short animation casually addresses serious social issues like stress, lack of sleep and screen addiction.
