Slime is a short film made up of related online video materials. The five narrative paragraphs, Spectacle, Lust, Imagination, Monster and Engine, respond to the first question at the beginning of the film: “What is a Slime?” In the film, slime not only appears as a variety of tangible things, but also symbolizes the alienation of people and things in the contemporary world.
