2017/JAPANESE(ENGLISH subtitle)/12min20sec

This animation is a SF thriller depicting a battle between people and AI.

In the era when AI holds the reins of government, humans placed under control of androids are restricted from childbearing. The husband and wife go to a harbor to leave their child in the hands of a resistance “Jinrui Shidan (human division),” but chasers are close behind them…

In the region where I live, over 300 children waiting to get into nursery schools and limits on employment of child-rearing women are major issues. So I have portrayed what I felt through child raising, in the form of SF dystopia
