Relict is a surrealist animation short film expressing satire and self-examination of Beijing's major social issues by depicting the illusion of Beijing’ future. Beijing, as the capital of China, has a lot of social problems that have existed for many years. Among them, the main problems we focused on are the housing price, the population explosion, and air pollution. In this piece, with a series of scenarios including indoor scenes and outdoor landmarks created for Beijing's future based on social problems, Relict will affect the audience's thoughts about our modern life.
