This year we will be featuring Cody Walzel’s “Breadheads”. This beautiful and twisted short features starving soldiers who divide a measly last meal. Suddenly, they receive an unexpected knock on their door, only to find their sick allies at their base. When the refugees turn to bread people, the battle between hunger and humanity begins. Painted in red, the animation explores morality and the strive for survival… What happens to these breadheads?
