Combining stop-motion puppet and drawn animation, Don't Blink
observes a young woman, somewhat forlorn on a Halifax dock, whose loneliness
is lifted by the passing of an otherworldly fishing trawler. A metaphor on the
connectedness of water, and water's capacity as a medium of freedom.
This animated short was made for Hothouse 1, the NFB’s program for emerging filmmakers, whose central theme was “Water and Our Relationship to It.”.
