Working on their 17-minute stop motion short Madame Tutli-Putli for five years, filmmakers Chris Lavis and Maciek Szczerbowski have created a masterpiece in their first professional film. Described as an "existential journey", it is set in an exquisite, lovingly crafted and animated world which is both beautiful and beastly. It is ripe with meaning and full of heart.
Produced by the National Film Board of Canada, Lavis and Szerbowski's Clyde Henry Productions created the film with Jason Walker(special visual effects), Laurie Maher(choreography/costume design), David Bryant(musical direction/sound design), and Jean-Frédéric Messier(musical director). The film has won a string of awards and was nominated for an Oscar.
Ideally suited to a big screen, screening schedules as well as the DVD are available on the official site.
