Jury: “Award for the best student film we give to a very personal, touching film that was outstanding in many aspects of filmmaking — story, artistry and aesthetic. We felt immediately enveloped in the story and identified emotionally with the characters from the first shot, which is always a huge feat in short animation. It is beautifully drawn, animated, and cohesive in its overall design. Sound, form and line guided the story, compelling the viewer to forget the frame and lose themselves in the childs world. A world that feels unstable and safe at the same time.”
