Why Watch? Feeling truly like a storybook come to life, Jeff Le Bars‘ short film features vibrant animation with jagged edges and a pop-up sentimentality. It’s the kind of movie you should watch under the covers with a flashlight after your parents have told you five times to go to sleep.
It focuses on a little boy lost in the depths of a snowdrift and the dying wolf mother that he makes a deal with to survive.
It’s sinister in its execution, but there’s great humanity underneath its sharpness. Aggressive and bloody, it’s a robust meal with a dark heart beating at its center.
What Will It Cost? About 5 minutes
