A father possum reads his kids a story that’s an alphabet of the most dangerous animal of all – HUMANS!
Inspired by the Edward Gorey classic, this black-comedy for kids and parents alike is a hilarious and brutal alphabet of death and mayhem exacted upon animals by ignorant humans. 30 CGI animals were meticulously crafted and killed by a team of 44 students at Media Design School.
Nina Gantz’s dark and touching animation Edmond tells the story of an oddball character whose desire to be close to those around him reaches cannibalistic extreme. The dutch director’s graduate film from the National Film and Television School has won numerous awards including a BAFTA and a Short Film Jury Award at this year’s Sundance film festival.
