Written and directed by Eusong Lee, My Moon is about the complicated relationship between the Earth, the Moon, and the Sun. These celestial spirits struggle with their sense of attraction and their cosmic duty.
The short film draws heavy inspiration from picture book illustration. The personifications of the Earth, Moon, and Sun, appear more delicate and fairy-like as opposed to gods or superheroes. The unique form of communication between these entities is a touching romance that could only be expressed in animation.
My Moon is only available online for a short time as it’s entered as a contender for Best Animated Short Film for the upcoming Oscars.
