21st Animation Division Jury Selections

Night Is Short, Walk on Girl

Animated feature film

YUASA Masaaki [Japan]


The team that won the 14th Japan Media Arts Festival Anime Division Grand Prize for The Tatami Galaxy in 2010 joins forces again to cre- ate an animated feature lm based on a youth novel that sold over 1.5 million copies. In this cinematic version, they take the original novel, which concerns all four seasons, and portray it in a single evening. Their expressive efforts shine in moments that could only be made on lm.
