Animated short film
MIZUE Mirai [Japan]
A day begins, a day ends. Life is born, and dies before long. There is a beginning to everything, and equally there comes an end. The recurring birth and death of small existences is the breathing of this world. Life is mysterious, miraculous, surprising, and living is full of “wonder”— a hand-drawn animation consisting of as many as 8,760 cells which express happiness to the fullest.
