Written & Directed By: Mónica Mateo
Length: 16:29 minutes
What It’s About: Adam Peiper begins to experience strange changes as he works stuffing envelopes in a strange factory.
Why I Like It: Although set in a single room, the short implies a larger dystopian world in which efficiency is the prime objective no matter the human cost. The purpose of Adam Peiper’s mindless task of licking envelopes and filing them away is irrelevant to the objective. His task becomes even more onerous and desperate as his body begins to horrifically change. These initial changes grow to be increasingly horrifying as they continue, all brilliantly portrayed through well executed physical effects.
