Cordell Barker’s Runaway heading to Cannes

News

Cordell Barker’s latest animated short, Runaway, is heading to Cannes for the 48th International Critics’ Week (May 14-22). The same man who brought us (my favourite) Strange Invaders and (everyone’s favourite) The Cat Came Back has teamed up with the NFB once again to bring us Runaway, about a driverless train filled with happy passengers oblivious to the fate that awaits them around the bend.

We’ve also got a new Web site up for Runaway that features a downloadable trailer, making of clips, some background info on Cordell Barker and the composer, Ben Charest (The Triplets of Belleville).
