Kafka's Doll

Inspired by an unproven myth, Kafka’s Doll is an animated short film that blends factual research, fiction, fantasy and myth into a single heart-warming story about loss.

When an ill Kafka meets a crying little girl in the park, he sets out to write her a letter a day in order to tell her all about her lost doll’s fictitious travels. He then comes back every single day to read her those letters, and in his quest to help her find a sense of personal resolution, he ends up finding his own in ways he couldn’t have previously imagined. This film is a co-production between Portugal and Spain, produced by Animanostra (PT), WKND (SPA), Lusco Fusco Animation (PT) and Studio Kimchi (SPA).
