The Animation Show s01e02
Titre original : Mt. Head (Atama Yama)
After a stingy man eats some cherry seeds, a cherry tree grows on his head. A modern interpretation of the traditional Japanese Rakugo story, "Atama-yama", set in contemporary Tokyo.
The director comments... "Through the nonsense Japanese old comic story Atama-yama, I wanted to express a mixed theme - a connection between one's identity and the public, and an everlasting idea such as the wonder of world being. This work is a completely independent project and took six years from planning to finish."
