"Loop" is a Skillfully Illustrated Narrative about Building Bridges
22 February 2020 | by tanyamanningyardeSee all my reviews

"Loop" is a skillfully illustrated narrative about building bridges. Marcus and Renee, two teen campers at an urban canoe camp, are unexpectedly paired together. Together, they must figure out how to navigate a lake. That becomes a challenge when Renee, who is Autistic and non-verbal, and Marcus, who is neurotypical, need first to find common language and ground. Therein lies the daunting, tumultuous yet epiphanic journey that we as viewers are privy to share with them, as these two characters experiment with how to convey their thoughts, feelings, and needs in pursuit of developing a friendship, and later, facing an unforeseen crisis. "Loop" is a pioneering animated short film that takes a calculated and successful risk in exploring humanity and empathy through the lens of neurodiversity. It explores the connection evolving between two teens at different ends of social, neurological and cognitive spectrums, who learn how, beam by beam, to reach out and into another's world, and in so doing, build a bridge of friendship to cross again and again between their two worlds. Allegorically, "Loop" is a sentimental invitation to discover ways we too can assemble bridges between one another's words, regardless of predispositions, and explore new intersections together.
