About the Film

A father gives his young daughter a yo-yo and waves goodbye as he shuts the door. Later, home alone, the girl swings her toy while her father leaves an alarming answering machine message. His voice attempts reassurance. Set during the attacks of 9/11, Eusong Lee’s visually arresting short animation is a stark examination of the unstoppable nature of time.

Set during the attacks of 9/11, a young girl wishes she could go back in time.

About the Filmmaker

Eusong Lee was born and raised in Ulsan, a city in the southeast region of South Korea. At the age of 14, he moved and attended school in Canada, where he began painting lessons with an animator in Toronto. His interest led him to CalArts’ School of Film/Video’s Character Animation Program. After completion of his first film Plug, he produced SHAPE. After completing his third year at CalArts, Eusong won a Student Academy Award for Will. He is currently taking time off from school to work at JibJab, a digital entertainment studio for production design and directing.

KQED broadcasts the best available programs from PBS, APT, and other distributors, and also produces its own unique national and local programs, series, and specials.
