In this story, directed and animated by Amélie Cochet and Louis Möhrle (Studio Piaf), inhabitants of an apartment building carelessly throw their trash into a shared courtyard. What begins as a small pile of garbage quickly becomes something else entirely.
Created as Amélie’s and Louis’ graduation film from Lucerne School of Art and Design in Switzerland in 2019, “IHR” (which is German for “THEM”) explores the way we pass blame and responsibilities onto others. Really clever storytelling and a deceptively simple style; great work all around.
