Quest (1996)

This extraordinary puppet animation, directed by Tyron Montgomery and written by infamous Thomas Stellmach, won the Academy Award for the Best Animated Short Film in 1996. In quest of water, a sand puppet leaves the sand world in which it lives. It wanders through other worlds made of paper, stone and iron, following the sound of dripping water. In the end the sand puppet manages to reach the water ... in a very tragic way. A tough way to find the reason of its own existence through an adventurous trip to alternative worlds. Recommended!
