History of Pets is a black humoured requiem for all the childhood pets who found their end in the most curious of circumstances. One by one, they get revisited as the main character takes a trip down memory lane.
Kris Genijn aka iZeMo who lives and works in Brussels, Belgium, made this film in 2013 and since then it went around 48 international festivals, won awards in New York and London and got distributed on television. iZeMo’s world is full of weird creatures squeezed out of his brainlobes onto canvas, paper, vinyl, wood, sculptures, tissue and computerscreens. He comes from a background of animation and motion graphics, for tv and advertising, and he has worked as an independent illustrator, sculptor, and graphic designer, as well as making his own independent shorts in different techniques.
