Eerie Short Film Combines Animation & Live Action To Delve Into The Psyche Of A 9-Year-Old Ugandan Girl

'Walk With Me,' an eerie short film that delves into the psyche of a nine year old Ugandan girl, makes its online debut.


Walk With Me is an imaginative short film from Ugandan multimedia artist Peter Tukai Muhumuza and Danish filmmaker Johan Oettinger that tells the story of a 9-year-old Ugandan girl who dreams of being a dancer. As she tends to the goats on her family's farm, the young girl encounters death for the first time. In a hazy world populated by purple skies and dismembered doll heads, the eerie film uses a combination of live action and stop motion animation to explore childhood, mortality and aging. The twelve-minute film, shot in Uganda and completed in Denmark, was created by Muhumuza and Oettinger as part of the Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival's DOX:LAB program.
