Wild Life

Borrowing playfully from the western, the nature documentary and eyewitness reportage, this animated film offers a fresh, wry take on the Canadian frontier experience.  Wild Life is about the beauty of the untamed prairie, the pang of being homesick and the folly of living dangerously out of context.

55 Socks

Based on a poem by Marie Jacobs, this animated short by Oscar-winning director Co Hoedeman pays tribute to the ingenuity of the Dutch people during a dark period of their history – the winter of hunger in 1944-45. It's the closing months of the war in occupied Holland. Some women unravel a beautiful bedspread in order to knit 55 socks to barter for food. Reaching back into his childhood memories, Hoedeman has made a simple, poetic film of rare beauty.
