Muzorama: A Disturbingly Surreal Trip Through a Very Bizarre World!

Muzorama: A Disturbingly Surreal Trip Through a Very Bizarre World

Muzorama is an absolutely brilliant 3-min. short 3D animation film based on the surreal universe of the French illustrator Muzo; the film was a Siggraph 2009 official selection.  Jean-Philippe Masson (Muzo) is a French Artist born in Rennes in 1960.  Muzorama is a suspiciously innocent little film, it’s like flipping through an evil, maccabre “Little Golden Book” on acid! The film’s deeply disturbing, but creative as hell! It’s so weirdly strange, but you just won’t be able to take your eyes off of it.

The Little Ladybug: The Good Lord’s Beast

The Little Ladybug: The Good Lord’s Beast

This little ladybug has gotten itself into a little problem with a big nasty truck driver’s pink frosted doughnuts, but being the Dear Lord’s Beast (at least for the French) has its advantages. A good prayer just might be able to save the poor little ladybug’s wings, hands and feet….

This Momentary: 23 Years After The Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster

This Momentary: 23 Years After The Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster

The Chernobyl disaster was a nuclear reactor accident in 1986 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the  Ukraine, which was then part of the Soviet Union.  It is considered to be the worst nuclear power plant disaster in history and resulted in a severe release of radioactivity following a massive power excursion which destroyed the reactor.  Four hundred times more radioactive fallout was released than had been released by the atomic bombing of Hiroshima.  The World Health Organization has attributed 56 direct deaths to the disaster, and has estimated that there may be an additional 4,000 cancer deaths among the approximately 600,000 most highly exposed people.  There is a 17-mile Exclusion Zone around Chernobyl where officially nobody is allowed to live, but people do.  These “resettlers” are elderly people who lived in the region prior to the disaster.  Today there are approximately 10,000 people between the ages of 60 and 90 living within the Zone around Chernobyl.  Younger families are allowed to visit, but only for brief periods of time.

This Momentary is a short film by Dave Ma, which brings us back to the Chernobyl area, shows us the place today, 23 years after the disaster, and the people who still live there.  The director of the film wanted to show portraits of the abandoned town near the power plant, the abandoned villages where many elderly people still live and the towns to which people were relocated.  The film is an attempt to show the humanity of the people and to capture little moments in their lives in a composed and photographic way.
