Mahjong

CHEN Xi

Animated short film [China]

One scene of a paper-cutout animation film. The story is recomposed from a Chinese print of the last century. In a Chinese style garret, four men are playing Mahjong. A woman stands nearby in silence, holding a bottle of liquor. All the characters have their own hidden cravings, unaware that these will inevitably lead them to ultimate doom.

(7 min. 20 sec.)
