Short Film Friday aims to pass along short films that I find on the web. I have a massive appreciation for cinema, especially short films and documentaries. Want to play along? Share your short films with me on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #shortfilmfri.
A few weeks ago, I posted a short animation film called Pilgrim, starring a refrigerator desperately in search of an electrical outlet in the desert. I happened to come across this adorable student film by Susan Yung, Emily Buchanan and Esther Parobek also starring a fridge.
The expressions Chillie makes throughout the film help you connect with him and the relationship between Chillie and his owner is honest and sweet. I will probably have a hard time getting rid of my old fridge when the time comes!
Synopsis: Thinking his owner is going to replace him with a more current appliance, Chillie runs away to the junkyard. Will he be scraped? Or, will this all be one big misunderstanding?
