Waiting for minimum critic reviews


A farmer shouts at the sun becaue it is too hot to work in the field. The sun gets upset, goes away and refuses to return. Finally, a rooster tricks the sun to shine again - and every day from then on. This engaging tale is based on a folktale of the Ao tribe in Nagaland in northeastern India. The artist-animator's illustrations are luminous and dynamic, based as they are on his animation film on the same story.
