22nd Animation Division Jury Selections
Animated short film
Yirui TIAN [China]
The work tells the story of a lonely man and captive fish and the sympathy they feel with one another. The man walking through the city in a state of depression and tiredness meets a fish shown at the “Fish Show” that he stops by. The dark and hazy city changes to a sea of bright colors as if to respond to the emotions of man. The work depicts a fantastic world where forms and colors can be transformed freely in a way unique to animation.
