“Wrapped” delves into the clash between civilization and nature. The short explores the effects of time and change focusing on the the worlds seemingly never ending cycles. The deterioration of one is the foundation for another. This fact takes on new dimensions when the unexpected forces of nature clash with the existing structures of our civilization.
“Wrapped” in my interpretation, is the plants way of reclaiming the Earth in their own deconstructive restructuring way. Returning what once was nature to its rightful place in the order of things. Death leads to a rebirth in the most unexpected manner.
Watch. Try not to predict what will happen. You won’t be able to see what’s coming. What a surprise. A righteous conclusion. Seemed only justified and I am one of those humans who occupy this planet that is headed for self destruction if things don’t change. Speaking of the present time.
We are letting our world decay. The infrastructure is on the edge of collapse yet no one does a thing. No matter the pleading from those who realize this but can’t get any action from the other side’s co-operation. Don’t even get me started.
If what happens in WRAPPED ever did, humans of the order of could-care-less, I don’t believe in global warming or climate change. They wouldn’t heed the warnings.
Watch. Be surprised but understand the thinking and the ramifications. It could happen and it just might.
A short film that will capture your attention and you will watch as though a ballet or the end of the film V for Vendetta. The 1812 Overture should be playing in the background. – kiley
