“The Last Bottle” (2:16) animation
MicroMania Film Fest 2019 Winner Best Micro-Animation
Director: Max Majoros
Description: A cycle of disposal is revealed through the actions of industrious life forms on an unnamed bottle-shaped planet.
A sweet short that serves as a thought-provoking, trippy mediation on recycling, outer space, our planet, and citizens curious as to how it all mysteriously works. Its message is timely and its animation and sound, sharply on point. With only a 2-minute running time, the film is imbued with ambiguity and mystery to incite conversation and engagement. – Alycia Ripley
