Lou, Pixar’s latest short film, takes place at an elementary school where a young bully is taught that giving is better than stealing by Lou, the guardian of the lost and found box. (Dir. Dave Mullins. 7mins.)
In Negative Space, a carefully hand crafted world is brought to life through stop-motion animation and the reciting of a Ron Koertge poem. The connection between a father and son is expressed through the father’s lessons on how to pack a suitcase. (Dirs. Ru Kuwahata and Max Porter. 5 mins.)
Revolting Rhymes, based on the Roald Dahl rhymes, takes the stories of Snow White, Cinderella, Jack (and the beanstalk), and Little Red Riding Hood and mixes them up into a twisted story told by The Wolf. (Dirs. Jan Lachauer, Jakob Schuh, Bin-Han To. 29 mins.)
