Rainy Days

Animated short film

Vladimir LESCHIOV [Latvia]


The main character in this film is a Japanese man who takes a ferry to an unnamed island. The film employs a unique animation technique using black tea and ink on paper with precise, delicate drawn lines, conjuring up a warm and tranquil atmosphere that mirrors the man’s graceful acceptance of his fate – and his awareness that all we have is what is.
