Aoyama is a boy who’s so precocious that, besides possessing an enviable capacity for analysis and rhetoric, he’s counted the exact number of days left before he finally becomes an adult. Although this question becomes secondary as soon as his village suddenly becomes the center of an invasion of penguins as disconcerting as kawaii.
He debuted with the short film Fumiko’s Confession (09). Since then, he’s made several shorts and worked as an animator. Penguin Highway is his first feature length film.
