SALEM HORROR FEST: Driver (2021)

A film made by Maya Kane in quarantine, this is an animated short that “sets out to put immaterial feelings into visuals” The director has stated that, “The short is meant to materialize complicated and contradictory feelings about the land we exist in and how we relate to it, and about acceptance and kindness.”

While not a length story, there’s obviously some authentic emotion behind this. I’ve watched it several times and feel a sense of strain and unease with the world, yet always come away with more hope, if that’s possible from this experience.

Driver is now playing Salem Horror Fest and you can watch this short and all of the features with their virtual pass now until the end of October. You can also watch this short on Vimeo:
