Gabriel Gabriel Garble’s new animated film sees perfume as pure escapism

Vacuum , a new short film by London-based animator Gabriel Gabriel Garble, opens with a mechanical whir and a bird’s-eye view of a supermarket conveyor belt. As a pack of six vacuum-packed grapes passes along the belt in front of us, a cold voice from a PA system cuts across the incessant drone: “Organic scents are prohibited by law in public spaces.” This is the dystopian world inhabited by our protagonist, the vulnerable-looking Antoine, who – we learn in the next shot – is the one buying those grapes.
