Genius Party

Seven all-star animators from Japan are given creative carte blanche in this anthology of shorts from Studio 4°C. Masaaki Yuasa explores an infant's first year in the simple yet dreamlike 'Happy Machine'. Things take a turn for the spooky as a child's imagination ventures into darker territories in Shinji Kimura's 'Deathtic 4', and Hideki Futamura explores a strange virtual reality in 'Limit Cycle'. Yuji Fukuyama and Shinichiro Watanabe go for a more surreal approach in 'Doorbell' and 'Baby Blue' respectively, and finally Shoji Kawamori plays with traditional anime conventions in 'Shanghai Dragon'.
