Ghost Eye

Belgium / 2020 / animated / 19' / Short Film Competition

Johnny Supro spends his days mournfully cruising the city in his taxi, driving drunks at his back seat and ending his shift with a few drinks at a bar. Just like "Taxi Driver" from Scorsese's film, he observes moral decay from the perspective of his car: violence, alcoholism and sexual assaults. Would his story have taken a different turn if he hadn't met a girl called "Ghost Eye" during his schooldays? This bleak, albeit lit by neons, neo-noir animation takes the viewers on a nightmarish journey to the darkest corners of the human soul.
