On the verge of becoming a woman Sora is woken by a nightmare and decides to follow a group of men into the city in the hope of finding her mum. Created from over 9000 paintings, which took 9-months of working 10-12 hours a day, 6-7 days a week to complete, Minha Kim’s unsettling animation Sea Child draws you in with its distinct style and then punches you in the gut with the rawness of its narrative. All that hard work certainly paid off for Kim though, her 8-minute animation has gone on to screen at some of the biggest film and animation festivals worldwide before being released online to surprise and enthrall a brand new audience.
Directed by Minha Kim, Produced by Jacob Thomas, Cinematography by Sverre Sørdal, Composer Antonio Nardi, Sound Designer John Cohen.
