The Return of John Frum by CHRISTIAN SCHLAEFFER

“The Return of John Frum” is really something that you can’t miss if you like animations and short films. Primarily this piece is the thesis project of CHRISTIAN SCHLAEFFER at the University of Applied Sciences Augsburg (Germany), faculty for design, 2010.

For the story, John Frum “returns as an astronaut and businessman to the postindustrial wasteland of the financial service economy. Together with a native, he sets out for a conquest of the useless; then things get confused, and what begins as a journey turns into a trip far off the boundaries of logic and meaning.”

I’m absolutely blown away by the brilliance of this work. Bravo CHRISTIAN!
