The Kid Should See This

Running Lights, an animated short by Ged Sia

The unfortunate death of a wild hare turns into a remarkable experience for a couple of children who find his little body. They feel obliged to solve this matter; therefore, they bury him in a playground. Once buried, the hare’s life gradually fades away and dozens of magical creatures that previously lived inside him have to abandon his body and anxiously search for a new home.

The hare’s life ends by dissolving into nature, but is reborn in various plants and living things around.

This is Running Lights, a story about the “never-ending miracle of life and death” from Lithuania-based animation director Ged Sia and creative team Pet Punk.
