This anticipated short film from animator Alberto Mielgo (The Witness, Spider-Verse) is a collection of vignettes surrounding the question, “What is Love?” The montage formate refreshingly upends traditional romantic structure in favor of a messier often spontaneous take on the subject. The Windshield Wiper acts as a prism for the many ups and downs of contemporary romantic life around the world. The art direction is simply supreme taking everything explored in Mielgo’s previous work to new depths. With exquisite form and contemplative content its no wonder that The Windshield Wiper is shortlisted for Oscars.
