Smogtown

Iris van Hassel Short film - 2019 - 4 min.

Short animation about a girl who makes a trip across a smog-filled town to deliver a package to her father. This is her first encounter with the grown-up outside world.

In this short animation - a combination of analogue ink paintings and digital post-processing - a small girl experiences the grown-up outside world for the first time. She embarks on a short trip across a smog-filled town to deliver a package to her father, a factory worker. Her colourful appearance, with her deep red sweater, contrasts starkly with the ashen and menacing streets outside her safe home. A miniature coming-of-age story about pollution and the confrontation with growing up.
