A little indulgence on my part here. I was head over heels with the implications brought forth by the book ‘A World Without Us‘, a clever thought experiment about what the world would look like in the years to come if humans dropped off the world stage tomorrow (with some poignant messages about our environmental impact sneakily woven in). The scenery from this looks like someone illustrated that exact book. Gorgeous animation with sharp, immediate sound design. The plot doesn’t really go anywhere, but it’s pretty and easy, and if you need evidence of something substantial, maybe it’s talking about drones. Sure.
