Synopsis


The short animation Nighthawks exposes the multi-sidedness of human nature. The director raises doubts about the distinction between human and animal. To her, the borders between species are dubious. She believes people can transform themselves into other creatures, as circumstances require.

Fang Ji


Fang Ji is a Los Angeles-based animator and illustrator, who was born in Hangzhou, China. She studied traditional drawing and painting for 15 years. Her interest is applying traditional painting methods to animated expression. Her concepts and ideas are derived from modern life but also from traditional culture in both the East and the West. The most important motif of her animation is the subtle relationship between animals and human beings. Besides, she pays a lot of attention on the relationship between human and the nature, the world outside and the world in the mind.
