Googuri Googuri

Animated short film [Japan]

MISUMI Yoshiko


A story of a girl’s imagination. Googuri googuri is a secret word shared by a girl, and her grandfather. For the girl, her grandfather is at times like a mountain, at other timeslike a tree, at yet other times like an ocean. This inspires her thoughts to freely take wing into an endless imaginary world. Googuri Googuri is a scratch stop motion animation drawn with crayons that skillfully uses the trace effect.
