Drop (1965) [Short]

Japan (MIFF 1995 , Buried Treasures – Osamu Tezuka)
Director: Osamu Tezuka

A companion piece of sorts to Mermaid, Drop utilizes similar brush and wash backgrounds, but stylizes its central protagonist in broader caricature. Tezuka made this film in one week as a demonstration to his staff at Mushi that experimental anime could be done quickly and economically.
