Short Film Mondays – Ryan by Chris Landreth

Short Film Mondays Banner

This week we are looking at a very inventive, heartfelt and intriguingly made short documentary about the life of influential animator Ryan Larkin:

‘Ryan brings to life the story of Canadian animator Ryan Larkin, who produced some of the most influential animated films of the early 1970s. In this Oscar winning short film, celebrated director Chris Landreth uses a hand-animated, three dimensional technique he calls “psychological realism” to tell Ryan’s story. Today, Ryan Larkin lives on welfare and panhandles for spare change in downtown Montreal, Canada. This film explores Ryan’s early works and asks how an artistic genius could follow such an unfortunate path.’
