Short Film: ‘Mute’ is a Ton of Animated Mouthless Fun

Mute Short Film Job Jorbis Marieke

Why Watch? Violently comic or comically violent? Whatever the right answer, this fantastic short from Job, Joris and Marieke introduces us to a quaint, weebles-style animated world filled with people who were born without mouths. For some reason society has still evolved to include a lot of mouth-based items (what cruel maniac manufactures baby pacifiers in this madhouse?), but when an accident with a sharp knife opens their eyes to creating their own voice-slits, the resulting bloody carnage sets everyone to singing.

The perfect Friday distraction, it’s a beautiful celebration of something truly, truly bizarre. Think “The Book of Bunny Suicides” in humanoid, musical form.
