A still from Alpacaland (2017)

Two sisters are whisked away to a musical utopia, in an ode to the Soviet tractor musicals of old.

My Wesleyan thesis film stemmed out of my love and fascination with film musicals. The film follows a girl who wants to live inside a musical, and her sister who struggles to understand her. They’re both whisked away to a musical unreality on an alpaca farm that grows more alienating as it becomes faster-paced. Alpacaland was inspired by 1930s Soviet propaganda musicals, which buried unsavory political intentions under loopy, high-spirited songs.
