SHORT FILM SYNOPSIS:
The computer animated film in which a 3D female figure shatters ruthlessly another figure into thousands of pieces, reflects how value systems collapse at times of war. Alter egos were created as caricatures and turned into Japanese Manga cartoon like animations – a virtual environment void of social and moral structure. The 3D wire frame models wear clothes from the SS2001 collection.
