On the White Planet (2014) Fantasia 2015
Dark sad story that is like a gut punch. This is the story of the outside and of the thing or person that is different and how society seeks to destroy it.It is not a happy tale and when it was done I wanted to go outside and see life. This is a film that will depress you.
The film's visual style is interesting. Using a largely monochromatic animation art style the film will occasionally shift so it looks like charcoal or paint or comic books or even fleeting live action. Its something that works wonders with the telling of the story.
A must see for anyone who wants their animation to be more than just talking animals or giant robots.
The film plays today at 4 at Fantasia. For tickets and more information go here.
