But do you remember the boundless imagination you had when you were children? The one that could transform a small plastic character into our hero, a stuffed animal or a Barbie into our best friend, a sheet of paper in an airplane directed towards unknown destinations? Sometimes we forget how beautiful, relaxing and sometimes rewarding it is to imagine what we want.
The young artist and director Alyce Tzue shared her most original fantasies and dreams making it an animated short film, Soar, and the public and critics have, perhaps, recognized in her desire to escape that the short film has won international awards.
Mara is a teenager with a passion for aircraft construction, but discouraged by the first failures she thinks to give up, until an unexpected encounter will test her and make her rediscover the lost passion. The person she runs into is a small (very small) character, Lucas, to whom flying ship has broken. We don’t know where he’s going and what he’s carrying in his heavy suitcase and when we find out we’re left speechless, because this is the effect that makes when we rediscover us children for a moment, carried away in our childhood made up of impossible stories and extraordinary feats that we forget with time, but of which we continue to have a desperate need.
