Goodbye by Tyler Russo

A man died in a car crash and saw his life flash before his eyes. Then, he woke up in an interview.

Filmmaker Tyler Russo offers up an unnerving vision of the afterlife in a dark, suspenseful animated drama.

A man drives along a dark road at night, only to find his ride interrupted by a brutal car crash.

The crash sends him to an corridor between the realms between life and death, where a series of unnerving “gatekeepers” interrogate him, forcing him to examine his life, regrets and choices — and determine his next fate.

The storytelling is simple and straightforward, touching upon universal concerns that all of us will confront, no matter who or what we are. But visually, ‘Goodbye’ is filled with darkly baroque detail. The film has the intricacy of stop-motion — but it’s a digital production, looking nothing like most animated films out there.

Thoughtful, philosophical and confrontational, ‘Goodbye’ offers an imaginative window into mortality, offering viewers a unique opportunity for internal inquiry and self-reflection.
