Description

86 mins | International shorts | Unclassified

This exclusive collection features the years most spectacular short films which were nominated for an Academy Awards 2017 in the ANIMATION category.

Piper (6mins)

Young Piper, a sandpiper hatchling, leaves her nest for the first time to hunt for food but is too scared of the crashing waves to reach the yummy morsels hidden in the sand. After meeting an unusual ally, Piper attempts to face her fears and increase her confidence.

Blind Vaysha (8mins)

Young Vaysha was born with unusual sight: her left eye can see only the past and her right eye can see only the future, while the present is a blind spot. Called "Blind Vaysha" by the people of her village, the girl is tormented by the two realities that she cannot reconcile.

Asteria (5mins)

Two astronauts attempt to plant their flag on a newly discovered planet. But first they need to get rid of some pesky aliens whose business there is unknown.

The Head Vanishes (9.5 mins)

Jacqueline has lost her mind a bit, but whatever, for her trip to the seaside, she has decided to take the train by herself, like a big girl ! In this profoundly gentle and poetic film, animator Franck Dion takes us inside the faltering, fragile mind of a woman living with dementia. Confronted by her own comical and surprising illusions, walking along the train cars as if in an unending dream, Jacqueline seeks to escape, but unconsciously so-which may be her strongest connection to the real world. Luckily, her daughter isnt the monstrous figure she thinks she sees, and is in fact watching over her to ensure her safe journey.

Once Upon A Line (7 mins)

A man leads a monotone, humdrum existence until he suddenly falls in love. What follows is a difficult relationship marked by a struggle for control and identity

Pear Cider and Cigarettes (35mins)

Hard-living Techno Stypes has been Robert's best friend since childhood, and over the years, Robert has been amazed by Techno's ability to sabotage himself. When Techno is hospitalized in China and needs a liver transplant, Robert goes on a wild ride to get him home to Vancouver.
