Bad Seeds

Canada | V.O. - Without dialogue | 2020 | 6 min | DCP | color | Animation

Bad Seeds takes us to a bizarre world populated by carnivorous plants that can change shapes the way a chameleon changes colour. The director deftly connects growth with rivalry and evolution with competition, crafting an increasingly shocking duel peppered with allusions to the western, the Cold War, board games, and much more.
