“Where Mary Lives..” by Shako

Journeyman animator Shako (aka Shibabrata Chakraborty) created this beautifully creepy short. It tells a disturbing tale, via a rich textured-print look evoking old kitschy paintings. Or at least, it looks that way to me. I love it.

A girl named Mary has a dark past. She lives in her foster home but her painful past never leaves her. She suffers from a rare mental disease called Attachment Disorder. Will she get well? Will she be able to feel love again?
