The Curious Child [Howard Vause, UK, 2019]

Why am I alive? It’s a huge question for any art form to confront, let alone a short animation for children. Howard Vause’s The Curious Child is a whimsical and thought-provoking attempt, which follows one girl’s journey through knowledge. Aided by her helpful woodland friends and hindered by some not so helpful fellow humans, both the child and the audience learn a little about life and death.
