Animated Kung-Fu Short “Requiem For Romance” Makes Breaking Up Beautiful [Video]

Screen+Shot+2013-08-18+at+9.50.54+PM+copy

This award-winning animated short film done by Jonathan Ng takes a breakup phone call and turns it into a beautiful kung-fu goodbye.

In this “crouching love, hidden breakup” story, inspired by 50’s Shanghai water ink animation & kung fu films, themes of distance, tradition, art and longing dominate a telephonic conversation as a martial arts tango provides the visual backdrop.

Ng is currently trying to raise funds for his next project through sales of both DVDs of the film or prints suitable for framing. Here’s hoping he has enough to continue producing such beautiful shorts.
