One of the year’s most successful short films is now available online. The animated dark-comedy, masquerading as a classic kid-friendly morality-tale, has racked up 16 international awards and landed a place on the Academy Awards shortlist. The film was then selected to participate in the Oscar theatrical release, screening in more than 300 theatres throughout N.America.

 

The film was directed by Eoin Duffy and produced by Jamie Hogan in conjunction with Belly Creative Ltd., The Irish Film Board, RTE and The Arts Council, along with narration by pop culture icon George Takei.

 

Eoin told Film Ireland that “My first short-film, On Departure, and then The Missing Scarf were created back to back. Both were centred around the same event, a recent death in my family. The first was an emotional display of the event; while the second The Missing Scarf dealt with the aftermath. Primarily the seemingly amplification of everyday fears – fear of the unknown, failure, rejection and finally death. The film’s script mirrors my internal debate on the subject, comparing the pros and cons of each, allowing the audience to draw their own conclusions.”
