An anthropomorphic animated bird named Little Miss Fate faces a paused screen of a man tripping in front of an oncoming bus, and to her left is a series of individual buttons with printed images of a skull and crossbones for death, a poop swirl for bad luck, a four-leaf clover for good luck, and several hearts for love. When her boss, the giant yellow hand who luxuriously rides a white tiger, is carried away on lunch break, Little Miss Fate can play with her boss’s toys. By experimenting with the different buttons, Little Miss Fate accidentally creates a monster with an insatiable craving for something we can’t get enough of – love.
Little Miss Fate can save the life of the soon-to-be dead man on the screen, but will saving his life endanger the rest of the world?
Director Joder von Rotz and Producer Ramon Schoch present us with Little Miss Fate, a short, animated film with colorful bursts of red, pink, and white clouds and bizarre images of whizzing fiery meteors and fighter planes. A chaotic apocalypse erupts as a result of Little Miss Fate’s monstruous creation, and Little Miss Fate shows us the destruction of a world taken over by a beast who digests all of the remaining love in the world.
This short film is perfect for anyone interested in courageous and lively animation that explores mature themes of love, sex, luck, and destiny.
