Yonalure: Moment to Moment

Animated short film

NAKATA Ayaka / SAKITANI Yuki [Japan]


This animated work is a poem about the night. The ticking of a clock reverberates through the town. And just when it seems as if there is no moon rising tonight, a large, white globe appears. Looking behind you, you see it has round ears and a pointy nose. Then, all at once, the houses of the town begin to move. At this midnight moment, the moon in the sky is linked with the moon in your memory.
