Graduation Short film
Medicine, shower, eat, sleep, repeat. A daughter races to tend to her elderly mother’s daily needs.
Until one day when she cannot take it anymore and refuses to attend to her mother, the racetrack breaks...
Race is a 2D animation inspired by my personal experience of seeing my mother taking care of my grandmother. I hope that my film can remind people that love and care is a never ending loop. I also hope that through the perspective of a caretaker, people can realise through it that it is normal to find yourself frustrated in a situation even when dealing with your loved ones. The main thing is what you do after that frustration, will you give up or will you make the best out of a bad situation?
My graduation film at Kingston University 2016.
Music by Richard Lacy, Sarah Elizabeth Lacy, David Bird and Joseph Lacy.
