The Short Competition 8 programme will be streamed live on Wednesday, September 30 at 7:00 – 9:30 PM (EDT). It will also be available to watch on-demand from 3 – 4 October.
Median life and/or death is a hand drawn stop-motion animation that contemplates both the uniqueness and the averageness of humanity. If all the people of the world would be put together, and from that, a sort of average human made, what would that human be like?
