Torill Kove / Short Narrative / Canada, Norway / 2017 / 9 min / Colour / DCP
In (none) / (No Subtitles) subtitles
Interests: Animation


In her latest animated short, 'Threads', Oscar-winning director Torill Kove explores the universal love story of the bond that develops between a parent and a child. The film unfolds in a world of magical realism, where people seek attachments in the form of threads hanging from the sky. With her signature style of minimalistic characters and simple line drawings, Torill takes us on a journey that is at once intimate in its telling and expansive in its scope.
