MyakuMyaku -Drops of Life-
Animated short film
IMABAYASHI Yuka [Japan]
An animation depicting the workings of life, using blood as its stage. An incarnation of a blood cell sways to and fro as it carries a red ball. There is a final destination to which it is headed. The repetition of a tiny mission whose accomplishment goes unbeknown to its “masters” shows in a simple way the silent workings of life unfolding over time… An animated work combining backgrounds painted in watercolor and digitally realized drawings.
