Shadow Puppets

Shadow Puppets

Based on Amir Gutfreund’s short story

A story of a friendship taking place in Israel in the mid 1980s between Uncle Nathan, a Holocaust survivor who communicates only through his shadow puppets, and his day-dreaming nephew. As Nathan’s shadow puppets act become less childish and more eccentric, his last connection to the world and rescue from family alienation lies in the hands of his youngest family member. The film is a mixed work of both live-action and animation.
