The 3-D film titled Fish Love is a tribute to Hiroaki Muragishi, who died in a swimming accident. Muragishi was an actor of Tan’s Experimental award- winning short film Monkey Love where he played an orange simian in search of his stolen heart during the cold Japanese winter. The film is a tribute to him and conveys a sense of consolation through the representation of the harmonious co-existence between humans and ocean.
