The Lost Thing: A Meditation on Things That Don’t Quite Fit

The Lost Thing: A Meditation on Things That Don’t Quite Fit

The Lost Thing is a widely acclaimed CG animated short film directed by Shaun Tan and Andrew Ruhemann, which is based on a children’s picture book by Tan. The film won the Australian Film Industry Award, the Best Short Film Award at the Melbourne international Film Festival and the top Short Film Prize at the 2011 Annecy International Animation Festival.  The Lost Thing won the 2011 Oscar for Best Animated Short Film.

The wonderful short film tells the story of a boy who finds a misshapen creature on a beach and tries to find a home for it, despite being faced with a world where everyone believes there are far more important things to pay attention to.  The film provides an engaging, tender meditation about things that don’t quite “fit” in this world.
