Utopia In Progress
The Animation 'Utopia In Progress' by Jenny Schmid took me a few times of viewing to figure out, and I am not sure i completely understand it yet. One thing I do know is that I liked it. Here is what I think this animation is about.
In the beginning we start with a scene over a river where woman is flying in a balloon and a man is coming up from the water. The scene is in color but the humans are in black and white. I think after watching a few times the idea is an evolutionary one.
We follow the man while he is reading and there is a bird type thing following him, the bird helps him with light so he can read in the dark. Then the man seems to be in space and a space machine picks him up and the machine either turns him into a girl or keeps the man and releases the girl from the beginning of the film.
The girl floats down to earth. And she is a cool girl. She lands on a skate board. Cool! She comes across a guy and scuffles his paper leaving him in the dust which leaves him looking kind of dumb. Then the girl starts playing the drums. Cool! Thats the end.
I think this is about evolution because it appeared that either the girl made the boy, or the boy turned into a girl. And the girl was much superior to the boy, She was much cooler!
