Reut Bortz recently graduated from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, Israel, which over the last few years has produced an astounding variety and quality of student animation.
Her graduation piece 'Stitches' asks “whether it is possible to adapt every child to one specific mold?" Bortz defines the short as being "semi-autobiographical" as parts are based on her own experiences growing up, but also reflects the lives of hundreds of other "who feel like they can't be themselves among their own families and communities."
EDIT: Reut Bortz has posted a comment thanking her friend and former Bezalel student Nir Philosof for his assistance on the films production. We're very fond of Nir's work at the Animated Review and have feature a couple of his films in the past, which you can check out here!
