Southern Malady

Southern Malady is an animation set in a parallel universe Scotland (where humans are replaced by anthropomorphic cats) during the black death. In the animation the story of the erstwhile occupants of a room is told through the environment, showing who they were and what happened to them.

The animation is part of a larger narrative on how the black death affected the people of Scotland as well as how the disease was spread and how it was treated at the time.
