Kaiju Bunraku

at

An original and rather excellent 2017 short by Lucas Leyva and Jillian Mayer that uses the traditional Japanese puppeteer theatre of bunraku to tell the story of two of the anonymous folk seen fleeing the gargantuan onslaught of Godzilla and friends in Japanese disaster movies.

To wit:

The first Mothra film to make it to Sundance. A day in the life of a Husband and a Wife, living in a world of giant monsters.
