Alpacaland follows a girl who wants to live inside a musical, and her sister who struggles to understand her. They’re both whisked away to a musical unreality on an alpaca farm that grows more alienating as it becomes faster-paced. Alpacaland is inspired by 1930s Soviet propaganda musicals, which buried unsavory political intentions under loopy, high-spirited songs.
