"Engrenage" - A Downward Spiral
Engrenage (Gears) offers a stylized take on the idea of ultimately losing everything due to debt, known overseas as 'the debt of paper.' Animators Léa Dorsan-Rachet, Faustine Dumontier and Florian Titone chose to portray this concept quite literally, with a seemingly happy man finding the color sucked out of his world when the weight of debt finally comes crashing down.
The film was a second year animated short created at the Georges Méliès Film School.
