Shadowplay is a multi award winning stop-motion, clay-animation short film, written and directed by Dan Blank. It won the award for the “Best Animated Short” at the Los Angeles Film Festival 2002.
Movie Synopsis: In August of 1945, in a closing chapter of the second World War, a blinding flash lit the sky over Hiroshima. The places that were shielded from that searing light became permanent shadows on the city's walls and streets, while the city itself was decimated. "Shadowplay" is the story of Akio, a shadow of a young boy, who wanders the city searching for his family, while trying to make sense of the unfathomable atrocity.
