Hao ji le (Have a Nice Day) is the first Chinese animated feature selected to screen in competition at the Berlin Film Festival. The festival’s 67th edition starts later this week.
The 75-minute hand-drawn film is directed by Liu Jian, who produced one of China’s first indie animated features, Piercing I (Citong wo), back in 2010.
Jian’s own company, Le-joy Animation Studio, produced the film in partnership with Nezha Bros. Pictures. Have A Nice Day will have its gala screening in Berlin on Friday, February 17, followed by four additional screenings.
