Niki Lindroth von Bahr makes intricate stop-motion animation films with anthropomorphic animal characters trapped in mundane existences. She uses these characters and worlds to explore deeper themes like loneliness and existentialism while making very silly visual jokes along the way. Her films really resonate in these bleak times we find ourselves in.
We recently spoke to Niki about the process of making these highly-detailed films and how they have been received across the globe.
