We’ve seen a trailer for Jonah D. Ansell‘s animated short, Cadaver, featuring none other than the voice of Tavi Gevinson, and we’ve been serenaded by the blogger herself with a version of Neil Young’s classic, “Heart of Gold”, which also appears in the short. Well, now we’ve got the full film, and yes, it is awesome.
The seven-minute film, which has been longlisted for an Oscar, is about the cadaver of an old man being brought back to life by a medical team, who sadly gets his heart broken by his surviving wife. There’s a cute twist at the end, which we obviously won’t spoil for you. Tavi, along with Chistopher Lloyd and Kathy Bates, does an amazing job narrating the plot, and all three bring the characters to life — pun intended.
We’ve got the entire film below, plus a video of Tavi singing a new cover of Pet Shop Boys‘ “Heart”. Is there anything she can’t do?
