ALBATROSS SOUP


Once upon a time... A man gets off a boat. He walks into a restaurant and orders albatross soup. He takes one sip... pulls out a gun, and shoots himself to death.

So...why did he kill himself?

“Albatross Soup” is an animated short film based on an entertaining yet disturbing lateral thinking puzzle. Over 50 people have been recorded trying to guess this riddle using only “yes” or “no” questions. The film will be a visual representation of the riddle unraveling as we hear a kaleidoscopic rapid fire soundscape of questions from these participants. An all knowing God-like voice guides the story by answering “yes” or “no” for each question.

The film is currently in post-production.
