This beautiful animated film Mt. Head (Atama Yama) (2002) was nominated for an Oscar in 2003.
A frugal old man suddenly sprouts a leaf from the top of his head. He decides to cut it off and save it in a jar, but this becomes a repeat pattern for him, as it continually sprouts again. He decides to let it grow and this allows surreal effects to unfold during springtime.
Koji Yamamura born in Japan on June 4, 1964, made his first animated film at 13 years old. You can visit Koji Yamamua’s animation website to learn more about his work and see his illustrations.
