Post-apocalyptic movies and books can also have a soothing aspect to them. The worst thing that can happen in the world has happened, and there is none left to feel it. All the great monuments humans have created are slowly crushed, covered and forgotten, but the earth abides and continues.
Wrapped is a graduation short film from Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg, which uses CGI and time-lapse shorts to shows a busy thriving world being taken over by bacteria, fungi and then weeds and branches that slowly weaken and collapse the giant structures of the world. The film takes us on a journey that starts with the cells taking over the body of a dead rat, and then compresses thousands of years into 4-5 minutes.
