Director Statement

Based on the work of the famous Swedish author, Stig Dagerman, this satire takes a creative and humorous approach to the themes of conformism; and the dangers of online mob rule. The film mixes live-action with animation to reinforce a story about an advertising illustrator who refuses to conform to peer pressure. In the background there’s a more universal question: What would you do if you recognized that what the group is doing is wrong?
