19th Animation Division Jury Selections
Animated short film
OKAWARA Ryo [Japan]
This tale of adolescence extracts a moment of a boy’s youth when he grows up between his home and outside. The animation, which resembles a series of graphic design images, is based on the artist’s own middle school days. The boy who continues to commit minor acts of delinquency cannot drink strong black coffee, but always brushes aside his mother’s hand when she proffers a lump of sugar.
