Po Chou Chi "The Lighthouse" (2010)

A top film is to be featured on the Animation Blog today! The Lighthouse deals with a relationship between a boy and his ageing father. Absolutely beautifully drawn, director Po Chou Chi sets his film symbolically in a lighthouse, as the boy leaves home but the father keeps watch, the passage of years depicted as ever bigger boats that depart and, sometimes, return, the rowing boat and the vast ocean going vessel. Letters are written, father waits, boats pass by. Seasons change, absences grow longer. Of course the boy will return but to what? Some of the most touching moments are set at the piano as the father teaches his son, and naturally enough the soundtrack, composed by Chien Yu Huang, is piano music of the highest order. As is the film-making. It did not come out of a vacuum. The director holds a BFA degree in Fine Art from National Normal University and a MFA degree in Applied Art from Nation Chiao Tung University in Taiwan. He is current studying for his second MFA degree in animation at UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles). The Lighthouse was made there. It has won numerous awards. Naturally enough.
