TOYS IN THE ATTIC
Seattle exclusive engagement!
(Jiří Barta, Czech Republic, 2009/2012 English language version, animated, 74 min)
Legendary Czech film director Jiří Barta creates a fantastic and secret world in an old attic, full of discarded knick-knacks, toys and assorted junk. Peace reigns over the abandoned toys until Buttercup, a beautiful doll, is taken prisoner by an evil cabal on the other side of the attic, igniting a battle to save her and restore tranquility to the kingdom of toys. It's an adventure fairy tale full of imagination, vision and unbounded inventiveness, combining multiple forms of animation. Featuring the voice talent of Forest Whitaker, Joan Cusack and Cary Elwes. Grand prize winner at the 2010 New York International Children's Film Festival. Ages 8 and older. Especially sensitive young viewers will find some scenes and characters scary. There is a happy ending!
Screens with the youth-made short Cupcakes Black and White (4 mins, Long House Media, 2012).
