Our awesome Autumn Series speaker, award-winning, stop motion animator Rachel Larsen is back with a pack of her fellow animators.

This talented crew, including lead animator and Christchurch local, Antony Elsworthy, worked on Isle of Dogs and will give us a pre-screening downlow with nibbles at Torenhof Belgian Beer Pub, before we cross the carpark to Academy Gold and delve into this new release Wes Anderson flick that rates a mighty 90% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Movie Info

In this stop-motion-animated film from writer/director Wes Anderson, an outbreak of canine flu in Japan leads all dogs to be quarantined on an island. A boy (voice of Koyu Rankin) journeys there to rescue his dog Spots (Liev Schreiber), and gets help from a pack of misfit canines who have also been exiled. His quest inspires a group of dog lovers to expose a government conspiracy. The voice cast also includes Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton, Bob Balaban, Greta Gerwig, and Yoko Ono.

We will start the evening at The Torenhof Belgian Beer Cafe with complimentary nibbles and panel discussion, followed by movie at Academy Gold Cinema, across carpark at 7:45pm.
