As 12 years (including five or six years of two events per annum), T-Fest all but runs itself these days. Sandy opened this year’s skein with this Japanese short film (about 50 minutes) featuring a young girl whose baby brother dies after an accident. She takes him to the mysterious unseen figure who lives in the woods and fixes toys for all the local children. As you’d expect, there are rules that must be followed, and they aren’t followed quite as well as they could be. Still, this is less a shocker than an exercise in mood and low-grade chills. A nice little start to the show.
