My Grandmother Ironed the King’s Shirts
Oscar®-winner Torill Kove‘s very first Oscar®-nominated animated film was this little gem about how her grandmother, and a seemingly simple ironing job, may have altered Norway’s history during World War II. King Harald V (the reigning monarch of Norway) is on record saying: “I love the irony of this short.”
Join a train full of passengers as they celebrate and make merry, all the while ignorant of the fate that awaits them just around the bend in Cordell Barker‘s hilarious commentary on class struggle in today’s society. Canuck composer Benoit Charest (Triplets of Belleville) gives the film a lively jazz soundtrack that gets your feet (and blood) pumping.
Here and the Great Elsewhere
Did you know the NFB has the only working Alexeïeff-Parker pinscreen in existence? That means filmmaker Michèle Lemieux is the only animator in the world creating films with this animation technique. In this film, Lemieux contemplates everything from atomic particles and evolution to the mysteries of memory and death through four stunning tableaux.
From the Big Bang to Tuesday Morning
It’s evolution like you’ve never seen it before! Zip through the history of life on Earth in just under six minutes with Claude Cloutier‘s absurdist ode to the creation of the universe to a regular Tuesday morning, with some surprising twists in between.
Theodore Ushev focuses on the jarring relationship between art and war in his 2012 Annie Award nominated short that caps off his trilogy on the ideologies and aesthetics of the 20th century. The film flashes through combat fronts and massacres, all set to a stunning a symphony that stirs the masses and mourns the dead.
