Stop-motion animation short film created with inspiration from the ethnic groups of Vietnam and their folktale. The materials used in the animation and the musical instruments played in the soundtrack were gathered from villages around Vietnam. The story is inspired by “Grey Tiger and White Rabbit”, an oral folktale which has been passed down from generation to generation in the Ma group. Original soundtrack composed and performed by Christian Wellbo.

“A tiger who is very hard-working and kind-hearted meets a mischievous white rabbit. The rabbit soon finds out that the tiger is growing a special fruit – which is the favourite fruit of the rabbit! It doesn’t take long for the rabbit to come up with a plan…”
