CRAB

POLISH TITLE: KRAB

REPRESENTED BY KFF

The sinking of a ship is a great catastrophe for most of its passengers. But there is an individual who experienced it as a miracle - for the crab it might be an opportunity to stay alive. The animation follows the story of crab who lives in an aquarium that is placed in a kitchen. From his perspective we see other sea animals disappearing and being killed. Finally, it is his time to be eaten… But something extraordinary happens! We discover that this kitchen is on a ship that is sinking. In the chaos the crab survives and we see him coming back to his natural habitat.

This film was made with a hope to stimulate empathy in the audience by showing them a story that everybody knows but from a completely different perspective. The idea for this movie is part of a series of short films that will show important events in human history seen from the perspective of animals.
