This is simple and very direct to tell the message!!!
Who is pulling that strings!?
From the cosmo, something is pulling it. I think from the hole in the ozone, god of the universe is pulling it!

難しいデータを並べて解説されるより、ずっとダイレクトに伝わりますね。これぞメッセージ、っていう感じで、子供から大人まで沢山の人が見るべき作品かも。

ほどけて行く糸をみながら「私たちは今どれほどの糸をほどいたところにいるのだろう」と考えた。

子どもたちに見せ、考え、想像(創造)する力の糧にして欲しい作品です。

I think we need lots of power and energy to make feature films, but to express what we would like to tell people via short films is sometimes more difficult than via feature films. I can't believe that this is just a two-minute film. I loved its message and warmth and loveliness.

ほどけていく毛糸を見るのは楽しいのと同時に、せっかくここまで編んだのにと残念な気持ちになりますよね。ほんとにわかりやすく、楽しくメッセージが伝わってきました!

簡潔ですばらしい表現です。飛行機で表される環境破壊の結果、他の生き物の生活を脅かす様がよく伝わります。また編み物を使ったあたりがすべての生けるものたちのつながりを感じさせます。子供にも判りやすい。
ふくれあがる毛糸の玉はなんでしょうか・・・人の欲望でしょうか・・・灰色の玉は不気味ですね。

Interesting portrayal of an environmental issue through the use of yarn as a medium. A very original idea that is easy to understand for all ages and cultures.
