Details

Ce film s'inspire de la vie de Ryan Larkin, un animateur canadien qui, il y a trente ans, a réalisé à l'Office national du film certaines des œuvres d'animation les plus marquantes de son époque.

Ryan fait entendre la voix de ce dernier et celles de gens qui l'ont connu par l'entremise d'étranges personnages en 3D, tordus, brisés et désarticulés... des personnages dont les allures bizarres, humoristiques ou simplement troublantes reflètent l'univers psycho-réaliste de Chris Landreth.

Education

Ages 15 to 17
Investigate the effects of success. How was Ryan pressured to perform? How did this affect his ability to make his art? Students can reflect on situations where they feel pressure and how it affects their decisions and sense of well-being. Why did Ryan turn to substance abuse? Why doesn’t he accept help to get a job and get off the streets? Ask students whether seeing this film has changed their impressions of homelessness.
