Synopsis

One of the must-see gems making its premiere at our festival, Midori-Ko is adored Japanese animator Kurosaka Keita's whimsically nightmarish vision of 21st-century Tokyo on the brink of apocalypse. Ten years in the making and entirely, single-handedly rendered in colored pencil, Kurosaka's fantastical labor of love is a marvel to behold. Emerging from the staggering detail and craft flooding every frame is the story of a young woman who sets out to engineer a dream-food that can put an end to the world's famine. Synthesizing Frederic Back's subtle, haptic textures with Bill Plympton's frenetic mutations and David Lynch's haunting wormholes, Kurosaka’s work still retains its own singular, luminous potency.

I found the beauty of being ugly, cause we all need to use other kinds to survive. It's a cycle and denying it just makes the situation worse... like what happened to that poor creature. It was made by them and ended up being wilder than all of them. About this movie, If you ask me, IT WAS BEAUTIFUL ! LOVED IT...

Story 10/10

Things are unclear. we know this kid that doesn't eat her meat, trying to be kind to animals. (What about the poor vegetables?) She grows up and turns out to be a seemingly OK person but who knows how ugly people can read more
