Torki, The Basket, 2018

This Indian stop motion by Suresh Eriyat took 8 years to make. It takes a village to make an independent stop motion animation that has so much production value such as this film. It's a sweet movie about a child's guilt and I was floored by just how much Eriyat recreated the streets of India along with all the indoor elements.
When I saw the 'making of' the video, I realized just how 'authentic' the set was. The part of street set was actually fabricated on outdoor right on to the pavement. It's truly touching and just goes to tell you how universal animation can touch the viewers in this no dialogue piece.
