Push This Button if You Begin to Panic

Gabriel Böhmer

United Kingdom / Switzerland
2020, 13'

Bartholomew Whisper has a hole, quite beautiful by the way, in the head. On a visit to the doctor, he is faced with a series of odd situations. A sarcastic and scathing comment on health systems, what constitutes health and what is a disease.

Bartholomew Whisper went to the doctor to see about the hole inside his head. His illness is not on the approved list but an MRI scan must be done. Bartholomew must satisfy the grumbly nuclear tummy of the MRI machine and finds out that the hole inside his head is getting bigger. Not only bigger but more beautiful. This dazzling animation reflects on mental health and all that it consumes. Like Bartholomew Whisper says “What a beautiful orchestra the world is if one is only acutely aware”. (Rui Mendes)
