POLAR

POLAR

Nominee | Runtime 2:22

An avalanche changes a polar bear's life, sending him on a journey across a barren fantasy world. A rich narrative exploration of mental health.
Inspired by testimonials on bipolar disorder, this disorienting frame by frame animated short gives life to the experience of millions through fantasy, vivid colour, and metaphor.
