Winner of the Vimeo Audience Award for Animation, Kirsten Lepore uses stop motion to create a believably bittersweet fantasy within this story of two unlikely penpals; one a mound of sand, the other a pile of snow. Each are endowed with sentience and mobility and come to know each other by trading details of their lives through a floating bottle. The result is visually inventive, yet also emotionally affecting. Bottle is a film which showcases Lepore’s rapport with current culture, but also her precocious handle on timeless and masterful storytelling.
