Welcome to the fantasy world of a lost boy whose imagination synthesises Tim Burton’s aesthetics and Hayao Miyazaki’s magic. At a train station floating in the cloud, a mysterious Red Tail catches the boy’s attention. Chasing the eponymous being, the boy travels through countless magical places, runs into bizarre creatures, and meets the wise sage who might know something that the boy does not want to learn. What is that place, suspended high in the sky and yet somehow centred around the wide-eyed little human? Why does it feel so gloomy despite all the beauty? Adapted from Fish Wang’s own comic book, the Red Tail takes the spectator on a magical journey into a world built out of fleeting childhood memories, which we sometimes tend to cling onto for a bit too long.
