The Poster Children

Production country: 
Festival edition: 
The Poster Children is a suite of animated, multi-monitor pieces influenced by the narrative and cartoon-like formats of Asian screen and scroll paintings. In this panoramic animation, two representative groups at the top of the food chain – people and polar bears – share a dystopian landscape comprised of slow-moving icebergs and piles of e-waste. They both exist next to each other as a symbol of distinct social issues, and both are natural enemies at the same time. Are they a danger to each other, or mutual protectors in a new world, ordered by the extreme and reconfiguring environments of the North Pole and the internet?
