This is a short film - a battle of two Karens fighting over resources.
Caca-capitalismo is a comical meditation on our internal monologues, directly inspired by the fight for resources driven by capitalism and hoarding. Inspired by real life Karen stories during COVID-19, this accessible fotonovela takes the absurdity of ignorance and cranks the volume up.
