10/2-5: Bertolucci's new film Me And You, A Fistful of Dollars, Bound by Flesh & more!
Canada, United Kingdom, United States | 2012 | Kevin Schreck
This account of what has been called “the greatest animated film never made” focuses on the three-decade effort of Richard Williams (Oscar-winning animation director of Who Framed Roger Rabbit?) to realize his dream project, The Thief and the Cobbler. This epic inspired by the Arabian Nights was ultimately taken out of Williams’ hands while still unfinished, and released in various bastardized versions around the world. Filmmaker Kevin Schreck tells the story behind this aborted magnum opus by weaving together mind-blowing animation, rare archival footage, and interviews with key artists who worked on the project. “Grade ‘A’…[A] Herculean accomplishment…A heartbreaking account of a thwarted animated masterpiece.” –Indiewire. “An amazing film about an amazing artist…If it plays near you, rush out and see Persistence of Vision.” –Bill Plympton.
83 min. Blu-ray. Ohio premiere.
