Short Film of Death: ‘Mother Nature’ Violently Speaks For the Trees

M is for Mother Nature

Why Watch? To celebrate The ABCs of Death 2‘s search for the second 26th director, we’re posting 13 contest entries for 13 days. All of which start with M is for.

Today’s is Mother Nature from Mugworth.

Turning the tables with some animation (and full-frontal nudity), this short puts a revenge fantasy on display that’s morbid in its simplicity (especially if you value your stick). Clever and quick with notes of Bill Plympton, it’s either a far more delightful version of The Happening or a terrifying sequel to “The Giving Tree.”

What Will It Cost? Around 1 minute

Vote for M is for Mother Nature here.
