Varken (Pig)

Varken pig

A group of animals hook up a power grid to the socket-shaped snout of one big, sleeping pig. The animals use the pig’s energy for simple things at first, but soon they render themselves dependent on a city where every single thing – the useful and the useless – is automated… How long can that last?

Jorn Leeuwerink (19th of July, 1990, Wormer) tells seemingly sweet fables about serious themes, with dark humor and a playful visual style. His graduation short ‘Flower Found!’ was included in the prestigious Animation Show of Shows, selected for 70+ festivals (a.o. Annecy, Zagreb and Hiroshima) and won 17 prizes. ‘Pig’ marks his professional debut. Besides directing animation, he co-founded and curates the annual Fluxus Animation Festival.
