False Poupie is a stop-motion animated film about a young Asian woman's quest for self-identity. Her False Poupie ("false doll") takes us upon a fantastical journey filled with emotions and creatures, reminiscent of the work by Hans Bellmer, Jan Svankmajer, and Swift's Gulliver's Travels. This film is a powerful allegory about shifting personas and self-imposed boundaries.
