Directed by Benh Zeitlin.
A pea-sized pirate quests to slay a villainous Egg yolk in this stop-motion animated retelling of Herman Melville's Moby Dicks. A microscopic tale of epic tragedy.
"Egg" was Benh's senior thesis film at Wesleyan. From there it went on to win a Grand Jury prize for Best Animated Short at the Slamdance Film Festival in 2005. It was filmed in part on the squash courts of Wesleyan, the location which gave its name to our filmmaking collective!
