THE GAME OF CHANCE

Anselm Oettel | Animation | 06:56

Glücksspiel, "The Game of Chance", is an abstract and minimalistic animation in which choices are the central subject. Because to what degree do the choices we make dictate the rest of our lives? Are we aware of the fact that the choices we make for ourselves also influence the lives of the people around us? With Glückspiel I want to show how the main character’s egotistical choices bring not only chaos to his own life, but also to that of others. Now it’s up to him to face the consequences of the choices that he made.

HAPPY NEW YEAR
