Tennis, Oranges

Directed by Sean Pecknold

Produced by Sean Pecknold

United States | English | 11' | Fiction

A robotic vacuum suffering from burnout quits its job at a hospital and sets out to find community and a greater purpose on a quiet street where two lonely rabbits are stuck in perpetual loops.

Picture this scenario: lonely, geriatric rabbits in a forgotten community center are forever changed by a run-in with an overworked Roomba having an existential crisis. Sounds bizarre? It is, and also profoundly touching. In “Tennis, Oranges,” director Sean Pecknold masterfully pulls from the animator’s toolkit to create a surreal animated ballet (that’s a first for me!) that explores themes of loneliness, mortality, and our desperate need for connection. This film is both a visual treat and a tender exploration of the human condition through the most unexpected of characters. Pecknold reminds us that if we take time to see those around us, life can offer profound beauty and meaning. But we have to look.
