The Natural Death of a Mouse

Der natürliche Tod der Maus

Katharina Huber

Animation film

These are catastrophic times: climate collapse, the waste from today’s civilisation, contaminated fruit, not to mention the social pressures. The protagonist takes all this greatly to heart and looks for some spiritual solace.
Some days she imagines that simply through the powers of her mind she can make the body parts of people she thinks are evil drop off. Other days, everyone around her looks just beautiful. And when she was little, she used to wish that flowers could grow out of her footprints.
This film takes a probing look into our own states of mind.
