Michiko: a child born of war


Film commissioned by the University of Birmingham, under the Children Born of War project (CHIBOW), 2018.

“Michiko is a wonderful short film that brings to life the emotional journey of a child born of war and her mother in the aftermath of the Second Sino-Japanese War. The attention to detail coupled with a sensitive and empathetic artist’s eye has resulted in an animation that successfully translates very personal experiences into a relatable film of great impact.”
