Contrary to some reader comments, Curbed SF is not entirely run by snarky and soulless robots. That's why this short film by Martin Hampton makes us sad. It's called Possessed and it's about hoarding.
The film questions whether hoarding is a symptom of mental illness or a revolt against the material recklessness of consumerism. When does collecting become hoarding and why do possessions exert such an influence on our lives?
The video is about 21 minutes long and can be seen in its entirety below:
