Review: Michaela Müller’s “Airport”

Who hasn’t been to an airport, or travelled by plane? For writer, director and animator Michaela Müller, these universal experiences are the catalysts behind her acclaimed short film Airport, which has been screening at festivals internationally and stateside (including Sundance) since the latter half of 2017. Painting directly onto glass to gorgeous effect, Müller creates vivid, impressionistic portraits of familiar scenarios to explore the range of emotions we feel when travelling.
