17th Animation Division Jury Selections
Hinata no Aoshigure (The Sunshine of a Blue Autumn Shower)
Animated short film
ISHIDA Hiroyasu [Japan]
Hinata, a timid boy in the fourth grade of elementary school, is very fond of Shigure, a popular girl in his class. One day, when Hinata unexpectedly finds out that Shigure will transfer to another school, he decides “I’m going to tell my Shigure how I feel” and starts to run… This debut work by a young director is a wondrous action-filled animation which marvelously “goes all out to confess”.
