The animation by Lucie Prigent, Vincent Gallut and Damien Deschamps could easily function as a music video for any given piece from the hypnagogic pop or chillwave genres. Just like in those musical movements, the authors swim in nostalgia for times they have no way of remembering – in this case the ‘70s. Their knowledge comes from pop culture, hence their hypnotic vision of Venice Beach consists of never-ending summer on the beach, palm trees and slo-mo skateboard rides in a drained pool. However, all of this has an underlying layer of anxiety, which slowly engulfs the blissful daydreaming.
