Sore Eyes for Infinity

Animated short film

Elli VUORINEN [Finland]


An optician’s workday is filled by a line of extraordinary customers, who, one by one, take home the optical equipments such as a microscope and a telescope. Later the optician finds out that they use the equipments in suspicious ways. The film tells a story about the feelings of anxiety and helplessness we all sometimes feel when trying to cope with the world around us – and about the equally familiar need to take a break from it all.
