A man gets off a boat. He walks into a restaurant and orders albatross soup. He takes one sip… pulls out a gun, and shoots himself to death. So…why did he kill himself?
Based off the classic lateral-thinking puzzle, ALBATROSS SOUP is a delightfully fluid animation that lyrically complements a chorus of voices attempting to investigate a puzzling suicide. Can you solve it before the film ends?

“My favorite film I saw at Sundance 2019. Albatross Soup is a delightfully psychedelic animation, an intriguing murder-mystery, and a genuinely innovative formal approach to non-fiction filmmaking. It’s weird, original, and a whole lot of fun.” – S/W Curator, Jason Sondhi
