About this submission

“Chancla Vieja” translated from Spanish as “Old Sandal” is an animated film that follows the story of a young girl that is prompted out of her home, as her mother takes care of the plant she left behind as a way to deal with her separation anxiety. The all-paper materiality is inspired by how an immigrant’s life is defined by a couple of pieces of paper, whether that is a passport, ticket or visa, while it attempts to showcase immigration as a manufactured treatment of society and takes on critical views of the aristocratic ways of the immigration process.
