Suffering from consumer’s fever, a young man starts a journey to the end of the world. From French animator Mélody Boulissière comes “Somewhere”, a lovely stop-motion animation about modern world fatigue and the yearn to escape. A mix of paint on glass and collage, the uniquely textured animation combines broad-stroke painted figures with real-world paper cut-out imagery. On a rainy night, a man is holed up in his apartment, lost in the delirium of online shopping, swallowed by options and pop-up ads. As he scrolls through fedoras, they appear on his head (the same with boots and backpacks), a marvel of convenience that somehow results only in disgust and alienation. When he finally leaves his city and reaches a new destination, he breathes a sigh of relief, until frustration from his laptop is replaced by frustration from his smartphone, and he heads off further still. (6 minutes). Directed and animated by Mélody Boulissière. Screenplay: Mélody Boulissière and Bogdan Stamatin. Sound Designer: Grégoire Chauvot. Original score: Clément Guillot.
