Video of the day -- Exodus

An evocative short film from France (no dialogue, so you don't need to know French).  Comprehension note:  the dying animal at the beginning is bigger than you think.

I watched it twice. Provocative.

Glad you found it of interest. It's an intriguing concept, strikingly realized.

I can't say I entirely understand what it means or even if there is supposed to be a meaning. Beings escaping a dying/dead environment and seeking what eventually be another? Anyway, I watched it again. The creature that attacked the beings looked similar to a tardigrade, a creature that can survive in the harshest environments.

It's analogizing humans with lice, which flee their host when it dies and seek a living one. Perhaps a reference to the dream of some fools that we can flee to another planet if we ruin this one, or perhaps an entirely different intent. And there's nothing wrong with making a work of art for its own sake, without also making some kind of point.
