15th Animation Division Jury Selections
Animated short film [Japan]
A resort area, somewhere rural, amid pine trees so grand they look as if they were painted on Fusuma doors; the sliding doors of a Japanese house, and a bustling ropeway traveling back and forth between mountain peaks. There is a girl who transforms into an ear, a naked, yellow man, and newts who walk around as if they were humans. Together, they are giving a concert on an outdoor stage by the lake. The creator depicts the strange characters, who are very reminiscent of Japanese monsters, with his humid and unique view.
