“Agua Viva” (2018)

This beautifully animated short does a great job of looking into the inner monologue of what a Chinese manicurist might be thinking as she interacts with her clients. It offers surface level, but still compelling thoughts about the worries of speaking in a language that’s not your natural tongue. On top of that, this film is simply beautiful to look at, with an animation style that makes it look as if it’s a painting that’s moving and has come to life. The best way I can describe this short is that it breathes and feels real, and that’s really all that’s needed for me to say this is worthy of your time.
