South Korean director Kim Jin-man’s “Noodle Fish” was named Best Animated Short in the Short Films Competition program at the 29th Warsaw Film Festival.
In the 10-minute film, also produced by Kim, a naive little fish begins his journey to the world outside the water as he thinks that it’s the only way to become a grown-up. One day, he happens to hear the secret of the world and takes on the challenge of freedom. What is the world outside the water like?
Kim was born in 1975. After graduating from Hongik University with a BFA in sculpture and visual design, he received an MFA from the Art & Technology Chungang University. He has been making stop-motion animations with various objects at the B01 Studio.
