A biting animated satire of our Big Oil-based civilization.

Carface (Autos Portraits)

In this short animated film, a Chevrolet Bel Air 1957 offers an ironic take on the iconic American ballad "Que Sera, Sera (Whatever Will Be, Will Be)". The Chevy's bumper transforms into a pair of seductive lips, from which emerge the song's reassuring lyrics, while a choir of cars performs a breathtaking dance number in the background.A biting satire of our Big Oil-based civilization, Carface is a musical comedy of spectacular proportions, in which acclaimed animator and illustrator Claude Cloutier (The Trenches, Sleeping Betty) pokes at our contemporary insouciance about the environmental perils that threaten the planet.
