♥ An intense, beautifully filmed dark comedy story that will surprise and thrill you until the last frame. Start the countdown! A tiny red car drives off with a screech of tires in a rustic Italian village, and a desperate man begins his wild run to catch it. During the chase, the man finds himself involved in a series of very strange encounters with a diverse cast of odd characters who will help him in his struggle to achieve self. Time passes, the tiny red car is always farther away. What will happen at the end of the countdown? This film also won the 2017 Moondance for Best Actor, Best Film Score & Best Supporting Actor.
♥ This beautiful & unique film is a paint-on-glass-animated short film directed by the famed Russian animator, Aleksandr Petrov, based on the classic novella of the same name by Ernest Hemingway, and tells the tale of Santiago, an ageing Cuban fisherman who struggles with a giant marlin out in the Gulf Stream, off the coast of Florida. This is a new, modern soundtrack to this Oscar®-winning animation film, and it has won the 2017 Moondance for Best Film Score.
♥ Clever, tongue-in-cheek, wry comedy-adventure of a TV pilot, “Silicon Valley” meets “Louie”. Jim and Lyle are a pair of typical millennials…just not from this millennium! They’re the youngest old guys, you’ve ever met. But a freak fire and a meeting, with potentially world-changing consequences, unwittingly puts the brothers on a crash course with the fate of all humanity, eternity and, if Jim can help it, the end of it all.
♥ A frustrated writer, on the verge of suicide, catches an insect in a glass, and instead of following his first impulse and killing it, he lets the bug grow. Over time, however, it earns a different and more gloomy function, and soon they fight a match for the roles to be reversed between them, in this fascinating and thought-provoking animation: Which one will be the champion?
