Money and Happiness

Serbia, Slovenia, Slovakia2022animated10'International Short Competition

Welcome to Hamsterland - the land of happy corporation workers, constantly growing GDP and money that is enough to pay for everything. Statistics is a religion here, while economic indicators reflect the level of satisfaction among residents. In an office, yellow like the sun, there are thousands of identical hamsters performing the same tasks over and over again. A satire on the world founded on money and power where citizens are negligible elements of the system, easy to control and manipulate.
