Nothing elaborate today, I just thought I’d share an animation I found:


From the day André was born, he got harassed by the wind, which resulted in a fear of it.
Director: Emiel Penders

And for everyone thinking “That’s not really what angst means”, angst is also German for fear, which is the defining characteristic of this cartoon. This just seemed very metaphorical and touching, even if the first section was a bit long. I think the stark simplicity of the animation style really adds to the animation, as well. All and all, though, just a cute, sentimental cartoon about a boy and his dog.
