Animated short film
MIYAZAWA Mari [Japan]
This stop motion animation tells a fantastical story about life’s cycle of birth, growth, and departure. The film uses cream and cake materials that are hard to work with, accentuating a culinary sense of sizzle. By appealing to the tastes in our memory, its intention is to generate empathy from the viewer, and their own story of growing up and leaving home.
