Sixteen is about a teenage girl’s life being interrupted by all the usual tropes of teenagedom: the girls who look down at you at school, the sneaking around with boys, and the landing yourself in a situation where you have to, very quickly, mature. This short animation was made using traditional and digital 2D animation techniques by filmmaker Violet Shin.
Violet Shin 'The topic of abortion is, unfortunately, an emotional and controversial one. It isn’t simply “good” or “bad”; people have nuanced experiences and the important thing is that you overcome and move on. This isn’t a sad or dark story, it’s just something that happens.'
