Directed by Mohamed Fadera and Sami Guellai, Tulkou is an incredibly charming short, especially considering the medium it was executed in, using a mixture of stop motion, 3D and hand animation to craft a truly appealing, cardboard cutout style. The somewhat cobbled together look fits perfectly with Tulkou's shanty town-esque setting, following a fisherman dragging in his catch of the day, which turns out to be anything but a fish.

Over the course of a few hours the fisherman's fascination with the mysterious entity dragged from the depths turns into an odd and unlikely friendship, ultimately culminating in an unlikely gesture of their unspoken relationship.
