Shuhei Morita

Deep in the mountains on a stormy night in the 18th century, a man who has lost his way takes shelter in a small shrine but the abandoned objects he finds there and the room itself prevent his escape until he finds a strategy to appease their bitterness. Nominated for an Oscar in 2014 for Best Animated Short.
