Synopsis
 One day, to a girl living with strict parents, three elephants appear all of a sudden stirring the hard silence of this family. In this film of the absurd heading for an unexpected end, the girl acts as a brave artist who doesn’t hesitate to sketch and color the world she wants: she rejects to be bound to the family obligation that was forced onto her.


 

Program Note
 The world of colorless silence is dry, oppressive, and sometimes violent. One day, to a girl living with strict parents, three elephants appear all of a sudden stirring the hard silence of this family. In this film of the absurd heading for an unexpected end, the girl acts as a brave artist who doesn’t hesitate to sketch and color the world she wants: she rejects to be bound to the family obligation that was forced onto her. It is impressive that this film brings the animated animals into a real world with real actors and actresses as they break into a human family. (Joon Yang KIM)
