Hannes & Johannes (SE)

Hannes Elltorp and Johannes Helgelin are Swedish animators and illustrators. Their work is composed of three animated shorts, notable for their colourful and grotesque scenery and social critique. The construction of the shorts is marked by a composition in two stages: the setting in a somewhat normal scenario of mundane life, which escalates to a dramatic turn of events, filled with stuff of nightmares. This abrupt change points towards social critique, from depression and the food industry, to the consumerist television culture of today that turns us all into zombie-like individuals, distant from reality.
