SECRET SCREENING: STORYBOOK

 

A Refocus Film Festival Selection

See this special secret screening before its official U.S. premiere! Kids bring your parents for this brand new animated film featuring a beloved storybook character come to life. Our protagonist is a plucky schoolboy with a penchant for getting into boyish mischief – his creators, two cartoonists struggling to conceive the next comic sensation, find themselves captivated and endeared by the little boy and his myriad schoolyard companions whom they have put to paper. Sweet without being saccharine, this film is a clever, sprightly romp through an enchanted European city and a rumination on art as a reflection of a creator’s own hopes and dreams. Animated with nostalgic hand drawings made to mimic the pen and watercolors of the original text, this film is a warm, heartfelt depiction of childhood and all the bright, winsome possibilities it contains.
