Independent animators paint each frame of the animation one by one without the backup of a team but merely the perseverance which earns our utmost respect.

FACE 1′ min Look at this man Chaos & Order

Animation master Liu Jian will be bringing with him four short animations with various styles which are highly experimental: FACE shows a face that never stop “metamorphosing” while following the rhythm; Chaos & Order is a comparison of the complicated and abstract work of his then 10-year-old son with Liu’s simple and explicit style; Look at this Man questions the remaining “realness” after repeated interpretations through his son’s hundred studies of Lu Xun’s portrait; and 1’min turns our imaginary future upside down.
