Hothouse 2 - Glou Glou
Life is beautiful, but life hangs on strings that can easily break if we don't take care of ourselves and our world. We all know this but seldom react to the many alarming signs; countless catastrophes in the news desensitize us and cause us to withdraw, as if we were merely watching a play in a theatre. First-time filmmaker Marielle Guyot uses her computer skills with great artistic sensibility to bring the sea to life, death, and hopefully, life again. This animated short was made for Hothouse 2, the NFB's program for emerging filmmakers, whose central theme was "Water and Our Relationship to It.".
