The Origin of Creatures

Are you in the mood for something a little bizarre? Then this animated short film by Floris Kaayk may well sate that particular appetite for a while! Set in the future after an apocalyptic event, the world’s cities are decimated.

There are only a handful of survivors (you will get the bad play on words when you watch the movie) and these mutations are struggling to survive.  Their queen needs sunlight to reproduce and must be raised higher if their kind is to survive.  They manage to work together but this collection of human remains lacks one thing – a proper form of communication.

Inspired by the Tower of Babel story, this somewhat perplexing but fascinating short was financially supported by the Netherlands Film Fund.
