Komaneko: The Curious Cat
Komaneko: The Curious Cat

Komaneko is a burgeoning animator who creates her own puppets and sets to film them in stop-motion style.

She has a series of adventures with her friends Radi-Bo, a ghost, and a Bigfoot-like creature who she tries to film with her 8mm camera.

Featuring a sweet soundtrack with minimal dialogue (except a few strategically-placed meows) Japan's first major stop-motion animated film depicts new friendships, creativity and the conflicting emotions that accompany a childhood filled with wonder.

Screens as part of a retrospective of ten hand-picked Kids' Flicks celebrating ACMI's 10th birthday.

Screens with Isobel Knowles' delightful Owl Know How (Australia, 2 mins).
