This year's NW Animation Fest
concludes with an explosive cabaret of cartoons, digital delights, and
show-stopping stop-motion. Selected from a pool of 1300 submissions, you can
trust that we've saved a few of our most favorite films for the big finale.
Here's some of what you'll see on Sunday night:
When henchmen of a gigantic disembodied head
steal a sheep dog and shoot it into space, a Goliath-like shepherd goes on a
desperate quest through a subterranean metropolis — becoming a multi-platinum
music sensation along the way — until the intergalactic space witch transforms
said dog into a woman, and the final cataclysmic revolution can begin. (Srsly?
YES!) A young Chinese girl's father tells her that a cow lives at the bottom of
her cup, so she drinks her milk; as she gradually realizes the extent of his
habitual lies, trust and love are put to a difficult test. Animation legend
Bill Plympton relates the charming tale of a stoplight's rise from humble
beginnings to fame and celebrity. As his airplane comes crashing down from the
sky in flames, a WWII fighter pilot leaps out into the night, plummeting
without a parachute into the merciful embrace of a colossal jellyfish.
(180 minutes, two short
intermissions. Some mature themes.)
