KAGA Ryoya

Animated short film [Japan]

When we are born and when we die, someone has to take care of us. That responsibility inevitably falls on family members or others close to us. The theme of the commonalities between birth and death is addressed through this tale of a grandfather and grandson brought together by a guitar. Created frame by frame from watercolor-painted cut paper, the animation's style perfectly fits the subject matter with its warmth and textural richness.
[10 min. 53 sec.]
