GOLDEN TIME 

Directed by Inaba Takuya (23 min.) 2014

A family friendly anime that is  set during Japan’s 1980s economic boom years. One day, a 1960s television used for many years is thrown away at a junkyard, but refuses to accept his fate. The film beautifully creates a pure visual experience through the harmony of classic animation, sound effects and music. Golden Time was winner of the 2013 Japan Media Arts Excellence Award in the Animation Division.
