00-Baby Boom Child (00-tal barn)

 

An animated short by Maja Lindström

On their way home by bike through a deserted industrial area, a mother and her son starts to talk about what happened when our dream of eternal economic growth collided with the peak in global oil production. In a dystopian but plausible picture of the near future, our children make us accountable for today's irresponsible way of living.
