Short of the Day: A Surreal and Scintillating Adventure Awaits in ‘Ivan’s Need’

A bawdy animated experience for mature audiences only.

[dropcap size=big]Ivan’s Need is the award-winning graduation film of directors/animators Veronica L. Montaño, Manuela Leuenberger and Lukas Suter. It tells the story of a teenage boy, Ivan, who has a growing obsession with kneading dough.

The film premiered online only two weeks ago as a Vimeo Staff Pick, and in that short time it’s already racked up more than 200,000 views. Be careful though, despite it’s innocent-seeming premise, Ivan’s Need actually depicts mature content, so make sure the kids don’t get their eyes on this particular cartoon.
