Stop motion with wolf and pig

Ryan, un film d'animation original

This Oscar-winning animated short from Chris Landreth is based on the life of Ryan Larkin, a Canadian animator who, 30 years ago, produced some of the most influential animated films of his time. Ryan is living every artist's worst nightmare - having lost his ability to create and succumbing to addiction, he panhandles on the streets to make ends meet. Through the use of computer-generated characters, Landreth interviews his friend and colleague in an effort to shed light on his downward spiral.

Rivers and Tides

This documentary is a tribute to Andy Goldsworthy and his work. This Scottish guy is a land artist, a photograph, a philosopher... He makes sculptures with wood, stones, leaves... and then watches them as they decay and eventually get destroyed.
There are some very nice photography books of his work, but watching and listening to him as he works on these art pieces is really enlightening.
Warmly recommended if it happens to show at your local non mainstream movie theater...
