Step inside a dreamscape of splendid stop-motion, drawn and painted animation and exquisite computer-rendered moving pictures, and see how stories can come alive. Some of the tales will tug at your heartstrings, while others might give you a shiver. You'll dance with colors, marvel with motion, and meet fairy tale characters you'll never forget.

Notes to parents: This is a program of those who appreciate the art form of animation! In "J and the Fish," there is a dark but funny ending. "My Grandfather was a Cherry Tree" deals with the passing of grandparents in a poignant and poetic way. A cute mouse is caught in a trap in "Tik-Tak," but comes back to life in a new form. "The Alchemist's Letter" tells a story about regret and redemption.
