Our take

Pleasure literally oozes from this vivid short, which bubbles with references from kawaii to politics, wellness culture and mental health. Emerging artist Tulapop Saenjaroen melds animation and live action into a slippery, slimy concoction in this one-of-a-kind celebration of the joys of creating.
