Fantasy City by Tatsuo Shimamura

I’m not going to pretend like I fully understand what’s going on in this short–alienation and dehumanization in modern society is always a safe guess–but there are a lot of interesting visual ideas in this 1968 Japanese short directed by Tatsuo Shimamura. A bio of the prolific Shimamura can be found on AniPages Daily, while this short can be purchased on Volume 10 of Something Weird’s Classic Cartoon Rarities collection.
