John Frum, Messiah of polynesian Cargo Cults, returns as an astronaut and businessman to the postindustrial wasteland of the financial-service-economy. Together with a native, he sets out for a "conquest of the useless" — or something.^-^
then things get confused, and what begins as a journey turns into a trip far off the boundaries of so called "logic" and "meaning".
With a storyline initially based on the prophecies of the seemingly most syncretic, ridiculous and pointless religion in the world — though really not any more syncretic, ridiculous and pointless than any and all other religions — computer-aided handdrawn 2D animation and 2D-3D-hybrid background art celebrate a renaissance of the unconscious, free from the technocratic structuralism of our times.
