Puberty is something that can be difficult for everyone. It’s a stage where were things change and get awkward.
In Pupa we see a young boy beginning the early stages of adolescence. He sees those around him who have gone through this stage and gets increasingly anxious of changing. Through the bright and unique animation style, Pupa represents the change as a transformation into a monster. Those who have already changed are depicted as scary looking creatures while the young boy appears human. It’s a great narrative that uses an experimental approach to get its point across.
