Were you the type of kid who loved smashing, spreading, and soiling all food placed in front of you? In this short film, that impulse has been refined for your now refined tastes.

Flatten, by Hugo de Kok & Kay van Vree, with music by Ivo van Dijk and Sophie Ansems, is a brief yet splendid little film, featuring familiar food items like sushi rolls and eggs as they are pancaked and magically restored to the beat. You'll never look at bon-bons quite the same way again. [Vimeo via This Is Colossal ]
