Mascot

Leeha Kim - Republic Of Korea
2019 — Animation — English subtitles — kaniseed@kiafa.org

A fox wants to be a mascot. Any one will do. Simple right? Well no, actually, for in a society which evokes streamlining in all forms, a mascot is a very hard thing to become. The fox must train and school himself in order to become as anonymous as he can be. And great sacrifices will be demanded of him in the process. A touching story which critiques the societal ideals of beauty and conformity which govern many mainstream cultures. The result of this quest being as hollow as the insides of the costume which the mascot must put on.
