Animated short film

Madoka [Japan]


A work on the theme of hidden pleasures, depicting the desires of four women living in the city. The interior conflict between pleasure and pain harbored by each woman is examined from an ironic viewpoint, using high heels as a motif. The everyday lives lived to the hilt by these women are illustrated by a unique combination of 3D computer graphics and 2D drawings.
