Lorimer is a short animated film that explores a series of abstractions of colors, sounds and movements. A look into the space that we can no longer claim our own. A farewell to the memories, viewed through the eyes of Lorimer, the observer. Today responsible for the catharsis and misfortune of making us leave what we once called Home. For these arabesques and phantasmagoric drawings are the shrewd elaboration of life as it appears in the streets of Santo Domingo and in people’s dreams.
