Perihelion (Animated Short) by Nick Cross
This short film can be interpreted in many ways from the perspective of the viewer. This animated short by Nick Cross is very thought provoking. In this endless loop of terror, it shows the harsh reality of what war, greed, lust, and power has over humanity.
On one end of the spectrum, you have people enjoying their lives without a single worry. Being consumed by sex, money, alcohol, and technology. While on the other end of the spectrum, you have people working in slave-like conditions to manufacture all of your toys, gadgets and the clothes you wear.
In the middle of all of that is a war between nations looking to seize more power in the name of religion and democracy. What are your thoughts after watching this video? Be sure to see more of Nick Cross’s work on his YouTube channel.
