One city bus, three passengers and a back seat scenario they fail to address.
BusLine35A wants to be a message to take action. Inspired by the mastery of Andersson and Hertzfeldt, this dark comedy short deals with the consequences of the bystander effect. It highlights the contrast between two parallel scenarios -- a meek teenage girl being harassed and three bus passengers avoiding to take action. The movies focuses on the weakest point of the human condition: VULNERABILITY. We are not always strong and heroic, we have our weaknesses. At times we act apathetic and don't want to show it, instead we create a narrative in our head to cope with the outside circumstances. This narrative is represented by an ironic and mundane tone where the main characters, displaying almost no emotions towards the disrupted surroundings, look a bit ridiculous and inept. Lastly comes the Narrative Voice: a whimsical tool misdirecting the audience from what the actual movie is about. The viewers have to be proactive in order to understand what the substratum of the story is.
