WATER IN THE CUP

KATO Ikuo

Animated short film [Japan]

A man drinks the water in a cup and falls asleep. A presence is watching over him from above the clouds... All things that surround us - furniture, homes, trees, animals, people - are born, dissipate, and are then reborn. This “Cy- cle of Things” is the theme of the film. The animation proceeds like a dance driven by rhythmical music, and together with the fluctu- ating hand-drawn images, creates a bright and energetic ambience.[5 min. 45 sec.]
