Directed by Julio Pot and produced by Cecilia Baeriswyl, the animated movie ‘The Gift’ is so cute and touching that you would certainly want to watch it on repeat mode.
So far, it has been selected in more than 100 international festivals, included Animamundi (Brasil), Animpact (South Korea), CutOut Fest (México), Busan (South Korea), Mar del Plata Film Festival (Argentina) and Siggraph Asia.
‘The Gift’ is a story of an ordinary couple. The boy gives her a small blue sphere pulled out of his chest as a gift. We think it is his heart/soul. The blue sphere stays with her all the while during the happy times. But even after they decide to break up, she refuses to give the gift back to him. What happens next is heart-touching.
