Celine

The animation tells a story of a teenage girl in a wheelchair who hides her disability from her online school classmates for fear of being rejected by them.

"Celine" is a touching and uplifting social drama dealing with the problems of disability, loneliness, complexes, adolescence, and desired friendship.

The visual style of the film is inspired by watercolor paintings, and its shots resemble handmade graphics, although the animation was created entirely digitally.

This is a working poster.
