Uki is a stop-motion animated short, telling the tale of a lonely Inuit who struggles to survive after an oil tanker leaks off the coast of Alaska, killing all the wildlife in the area, leaving him with only his dog for company. It’s a dark comedy about companionship, loneliness and pollution.

The film premiered to a sold-out screening (500 People) at the BFI Southbank and received a BBC Broadcast on BBC Four following a documentary exploring the best of British animation. The film was also made available on the BFI Player and BBC iPlayer.

Uki has screened at a selection of film festivals including Animex, Anny Nights New York, BFI Future Film Festival, Our Fest and won the Gold Award at the 2019 Creative Conscience Awards.

Passion Animation also shared a clip of the film on their Instagram which received 120,000 views.
