This Oscar-winning animated short from Chris Landreth is based on the life of Ryan Larkin, a Canadian animator who produced some of the most influential animated films of his time. Ryan is living every artist’s worst nightmare – succumbing to addiction, panhandling on the streets to make ends meet. Through computer-generated characters, Landreth interviews his friend to shed light on his downward spiral. Some strong language. Viewer discretion is advised.
Chris Landreth is one of Canada’s most celebrated animation directors and the creator of a style he calls “psychorealism.” Landreth studied theoretical and applied mechanics before taking up animation. His first short film, The Listener, was released in 1991. It was followed by the Oscar®-nominated the end (1995) and the Genie winner Bingo (1996). In 2004, the NFB released Landreth’s film Ryan, which won more than 60 awards.
