“Heart”, an intense short animated film

Heart is the title of this intense short animated film created by the filmmaker and painter Erick Oh, supported by Matt Groening. The short film begins with the discovery of a mysterious object that, although so common in everyday life, reveals itself as something full of enigmatic meanings: a heart.
Erick Oh invites us to reflect on the possible meanings of that heart and how it can be a symbol of something that goes far beyond the reassuring knowledge schemes. Similarly, the short film puts us in front of some disturbing mechanism of human behavior. Furthermore, the use of black and white colours and the lack of dialogues give more space to the symbolism expressed by the story, in a maximum concentration of scenes and action.
