LAST CHANCE! Thu, Apr 22

The 2021 Oscar-Nominated Shorts: Animated

Burrow – Madeline Sharafian and Michael Capbarat (USA, 6 min.): A young rabbit embarks on a journey to dig the burrow of her dreams, despite not having a clue what she’s doing. Rather than reveal to her neighbours her imperfections, she digs herself deeper and deeper into trouble.

Genius Loci – Adrien Mérigeau and Amaury Ovise (France, 16 min.): One night, Reine, a young loner, sees among the urban chaos a moving oneness that seems alive, like some sort of guide.

If Anything Happens I Love You – Will McCormack and Michael Govier (USA, 12 min.): Grieving parents struggle with the loss of their daughter after a school shooting. An elegy on grief.

Opera – Erick Oh (USA, 9 min.): Written and directed by award-winning filmmaker and former Pixar animator Erick Oh, ‘OPERA’ is an animation project that can be defined as a contemporary animated edition of the Renaissance fresco mural paintings.

Yes-People – Gísli Darri Halldórsson and Arnar Gunnarsson (Iceland, 8 min.): One morning an eclectic mix of people face the everyday battle, such as work, school and dish-washing. As the day progresses, their relationships are tested and ultimately their capacity to cope.

PLUS A SELECTION OF ADDITIONAL ANIMATED SHORTS (from the shortlist):

The Snail and the Whale (UK/Germany, 26 min.)

Kapaemahu (USA, 7 min.)

To Gerard (USA, 8 min.)

Ratings guidelines: PG-13. In IF ANYTHING HAPPENS, parents mourn their child, killed in a school shooting. GENIUS LOCI contains some foul language, smoking, and very brief nudity. The program overall, while excellent, deals with some tough issues and a few of the films are not suitable for children under 12.
