Mother Tongue (2003) [Short]

Australia (MIFF 2003 , Animation)
Director: Susan (Kim) Danta

A man receives an audio-cassette from his family overseas. Their voices measure the real and imaginary distances between them. This enchanting piece uses actual audio-cassettes from the animator's childhood in Korea which, paired with beautiful painterly animation, create a haunting, dream-like effect. Screened at Annecy.
