SAKAMOTO Yusuke

Animated short film [Japan]

The work is set in a town haunted by enormous crayfish. A man who feeds his family by exterminating the crayfish, a man who favors them, a youth living together with a fried egg, a boy playing with a ball in a park…when these characters become entangled, an incident occurs. A fable about love, expressing themes of love leading to violence, sorrow, madness, and to new life in which fantasy and reality merge together.

(6 min. 40 sec.)
