Temple Rider

This incredibly surreal Cantonese animated film was uploaded yesterday by Hong Kong-based studio Simage Animation & Media. Temple Rider is fairly easy to understand without subtitles – and absolutely beautiful to look at. According to the studio, “the girl in our story (Yan) is a reflection of the new generation in Hong Kong. She is very protective by her family and does not even have the guts to ride on a two-wheel bicycle. One day, she finds a magic temple and her new challenge begins.”
