Motorville

The United States of America come to life in the search of the lost oil.

The map of America comes to life and starts wandering around looking for oil reserves, long extinguished from the the US soil. So the country l stars marching east, where it’ll find some oil to stock up and literally inject itself with. At this rate, though, what will happen to the Earth?
Motorville is an ironic and bitter reflection on what the USA are perpetrating in the black gold rush, a critique to a system that’s absolutely careless about the environmental consequences and the disastrous aftermath of its own actions.
Patrick Jean’s satirical short is a clear stand against the abuse that many nations, starting from the USA, are committing towards Earth’s resources. The caustic tone of the film has caused some controversy, so that Showtime, the the U.S. channel that  had originally commissioned the work, refused to broadcast it.
