Animated short film

FUKAYA Lisa [Japan]

© 2018 Lisa FUKAYA | The Open Workshop

Mimi has a pimple on her cheek. She is afraid of developing faster than the other girls, and the other girls ignore her existence. This animation depicts the anxiety born from group life and likens the act of liberation from it to the chrysalis’ transformation into a butterfly. The artist uses warm colors and gentle brushstrokes together with loop materials and linear camerawork, and creates backdrop images that appear to be moving.
