THE SILENCE BENEATH THE BARK

THE SILENCE BENEATH THE BARK

DIRECTOR: Joanna Lurie - (France)

Two creatures are wakened from their sleep beneath layers of snow and earth by the falling of a tree. Lurie’s painterly yet graphic film follows them as they explore the surface and its mysteries. (11 mins.)


GLENN OWEN DODDS

DIRECTOR: Frazer Bailey - (Australia)

En route to his bus stop one day, Michael is intrigued by a line of people in front of an alley door painted red. Thus begins a chance meeting with both the girl of his dreams and God. (16 mins.)


LET’S POLLUTE

DIRECTOR: Geefwee Boedoe - (United States)

In the spirit of ’50s and ’60s educational films, Let’s Pollute is a modern social satire on pollution as an economic driving force and as our collective cultural heritage. (7 mins.)


THE GRUFFALO

THE GRUFFALO

DIRECTOR: Max Lang, Jakob Schuh - (Great Britain)

Helena Bonham-Carter, Robbie Coltrane, Tom Wilkinson, and John Hurt lend their voices to this animated fable about a mouse who wanders into the woods in search of nuts and nearly ends up being served in a soup instead. (27 mins.)


SEEDS OF THE FALL

SEEDS OF THE FALL

DIRECTOR: Patrik Eklund - (Sweden)

When a middle-aged married couple’s bedtime is interrupted by a tractor sailing through their bedroom wall and the sudden arrival of neighbors with a very unorthdox proposition, all bets are off. (17 mins.)
