One of the cutest cats to grace the silver screen embarks on a journey in search of friendship.
The imagination of a lonely cat can be a wonderful place. Komaneko is a promising young filmmaker who creates her own puppets and shoots stop-motion animation films. One day, while having a picnic with her cast and crew – her two handmade puppets – she encounters a Bigfoot and sets forth on a curious adventure towards unexpected friendship.
Showcasing a range of animation styles including hand-drawn animation and stop-animation, the techniques and textures of Komaneko call to mind the children’s classic Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer (1964). Joy, wonder, fear and sadness are evoked with subtle visual and aural cues that are revealed throughout Komaneko’s journey of surprising and disarming emotional depth.
Screenings will be accompanied by the short film Komaneko Christmas: The Lost Present.
