International Competition Programme 8: Looking For Answers (15*)

London International Animation Festival 2018

Yellow part of LIAF's Looking for Answers

These animations probe at the big questions in life. 

The loneliness of a Chinese manicurist working in a Miami nail salon, a homage to iconic 1950s and 60s motorcycle design, dreams about Donald Trump from people around the world and the physical and emotional journey undertaken by a lone explorer as he attempts to reach the summit of a remote island - some of the diverse, funny, moving and heartfelt stories explored in this compelling bunch of shorts.
