Children of Shadows

DIRECTOR: Naoyuki Tsuji - Short Cuts IV: Sketched in Time (Japan)

Black-and-white drawings with lingering shadows of children set the stage for this dark and mysterious animated film.  In a sparse and haunting soundtrack, teardrops mingle and mutate into fields of daises and slow drips turn to bunnies hopping down a woman's legs.

Duim | Lantaarnpaal | Windvlagg | Schoorsteenhuisje | Rijwind | Boom
