TEU vol.1 is the first chapter in a trilogy about mankind in the container-age and globalization. The logistics of containerization is so complex, that when seen from afar it could be an organism of its own. An organism that is shaping the world as we know it and whose sense of purpose is proportional to man’s fascination of growth and consumption.

With TEU, Director, Lasse Smith tries to convey new meaning through animation as a documentaristic and poetic medium.

A flight over the desert leads us to an intriguing encounter: a highway, splitting the landscape. In its center, a bright, dazzling yellow line.

Following this line, we find machines that roam across the veins and arteries of Los Angeles. Tirelessly, they paint, and repaint the line, in an endless roundabout.

We slowly discover a gigantic city spreading over the world, picturing a system, which, beyond its flaws, is still able to generate fascinating material, almost unwillingly.









Pernille Kjær is an independent animation filmmaker and artist, born 1989 in Copenhagen Denmark, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in character animation. She also studied at the Academy of Fine Arts (Det Jyske Kunstakademi) in Århus, Denmark.

Since graduating from The Animation Workshop in Viborg, Denmark in 2015 she has made a number of short animated films and other film and art related projects, combining animation, art and music. She has worked closely with the composers and sound designers Sofie Birch and Astrid Fabrin, amongst other things on a large-scale video and sound art installation, named Oden til Kloden. In between working on her own projects Pernille also works as an animator on other film projects such as Solar Walk created by the Hungarian director Reka Bucsi.





Sofie Birch is a sound artist & composer working from Copenhagen, Denmark.

She graduated from Sonic College in 2015 and has ever since worked within different fields of sound and music. She has wide experience with sound works for animations and from this she also started the artist collective Kai Oke – a collaboration between three artists making installation art combining animation, music, live performances and art spaces.

Sofie is currently active with the solo project Birch which sends her around playing live shows. As part of Pomfrit Sound Wørks she works with her partner Asbjørn Derdau on both sound and music compositions for film and cinema.





Ombeline studied at the Beaux Arts de Paris where she explored, photography and video. As a live-action filmmaker and a photographer she likes working on the themes of adolescence, the family, the campaign and its beliefs. Kerloster is her first film.
