Animated short film

KIM Hakhyun [South Korea]


“I can’t stay here any longer. Tomorrow morning, I must leave…” So says a clown in a maze, who then visits the other theme park residents – a girl, a man dressed as a woman, a soldier and a dog – and hastens them to somehow ride the merry-go-round on time… When you decide something, a murmuring internal monologue takes place between a wavering heart and unclear mind. A work depicting through spoken drama the emotions of a man at the edge of a crucial turning point.
