Albatross Soup

visual storytelling deluxe

If you wonderd why this short animation by Winnie Cheung caused such a beautiful stir after last year's Fantastic Fest - well, here's your answer. It's the pitch perfect combination of flawless storytelling and trippy imagery. Enjoy.

“Albatross Soup is a delightfully fluid animation that lyrically complements a chorus of voices attempting to investigate a puzzling suicide: A man gets off a boat. He walks into a restaurant and orders albatross soup. He takes one sip... pulls out a gun, and shoots himself to death. So...why did he kill himself?“
