FESTIVAL SCHEDULE: April 9

The Burden

In Swedish with English subtitles

The sublime banality of a hotel, a fast food joint, a call centre, and a grocery store set the stage for an auto-tuned musical. Whimsical animals sing their existential malaise via dance routines that conjure the magic of Broadway. This inspired stop-motion animation premiered at the Director’s Fortnight at the Cannes film festival and won the Cristal Award for Best Short Film in Annecy, France.

Themes: musical, meaning of existence, self-reflection, work
