Izabela Rieben, Sami Ben Youssef
Some grown-ups irresponsibly ruin children’s fantasies rather than encouraging them. This jocular short film is based on a feeling of wanting to retaliate against those grown-ups. However, the subject of revenge needs justification so that the revenge can be moral. In that sense, their parents become a sacrificial offering for revenge. Be mindful that you can be trapped in a prison built of revenge if you stick to don’t learn to let go! (Kim Joon-yang)
