Vulgar. Crude. Uninteresting.
Described as a short film about, “the native people of the land of Superbia, where men and women form separate societies, (who) face the changes sparked by the first equal couple in their history,” but whatever meaning lays within, lays deep within, buried under grotesque, crude visuals and what I’ll generously call avant-garde storytelling. With no dialogue and no distinct characters, I can only assume that Superbia is meant to be symbolic, but since there’s nothing noticeably interesting about the short, I gave up trying to figure out what it’s symbolic of.
