PANGU

Shaofu Zhang

Based on the ancient Chinese creation myth, PANGU is a modern tale about parenthood and the differences between generations. PANGU creates a rigid world of angular shapes, but there’s just one problem: his son sees the world as curves.

I laughed, I empathized, I even dropped a tear. This one’s for all the dads. — Natasha Lewin (Programmer)
