The prestigious ANIMATION SHOW OF SHOWS, which has produced 36 Oscar nominated shorts, presents 16 exceptional and inspiring animated shorts from 8 different countries, including 9 women directors. At a time of increasing social instability and global anxiety about a range of issues, the works in this year’s show have a special resonance, presenting compelling ideas about our place in society and how we fit into the world. "An exceptional program that starts off strong and only gets better as it goes... overflows with charm while containing more provocative observations about the nature of existence than most prestige feature films do." - Hollywood Reporter
"A welcome reminder that an animated film can be as intimate and personal as a signature." - Los Angeles Times
SYNOPSIS: Funny, moving, engaging, and thought-provoking, the ANIMATION SHOW OF SHOWS not only has something for everyone, but is a remarkable and insightful microcosm of our world. Not rated, 93 mins.
