KING TIGERMORE IN STRAWBERRY FIELDS
United States / Animated Short /
3 minutes / English
Director: Tunde Reid-Kapo
It all begins one beautiful summer’s day in Strawberry Fields, when eight-year-old Kimi, the American boy prodigy, falls asleep during a chess match in Central Park, and imagines that the white king has transformed into King Tigermore, the friend he meets in the Yamie Chess School Assistant, when he travels to the Mind Kingdom, the magical space that can only be reached by going to sleep under general anesthetic in a hospital operation. Tigermore takes his hand, and together the magical duo take to the skies, flying out of NYC, soaring high through the swirling mists above the Atlantic Ocean, when it starts raining math symbols from the enchanting midnight sky.
