The Kid Should See This

Somewhere Else by Alisha Liu

Watch more with these video collections:

Free to wander and explore in the forest, a child balances on logs, observes bugs inside hollow logs, and hops across the rocks in a pond. But what’s that sound lurking somewhere off in the beyond?

CalArts character animation student Alisha Liu celebrates nature, exploration, imagination, and the power of books with her 2019 animated short: Somewhere Else.
