On the Edge
Imagination is unleashed and the classic rules of storytelling are overturned...
Cert (15)*The most unclassifiable animated films are gathered in this selection for adventurous spirits. Flatpack friends Richard Edkins (Snail Party (Wah!)), Laura Harrison (Little Red Giant, the Monster that I Was) and Matt Reynolds (Hot Dog Hands) return to the festival with their new oddities, while new names from Estonia, Iran and... Birmingham (Paul Bazzo and his film Balance) make a remarkable entrance. Imagination is unleashed and the classic rules of storytelling are overturned to create rich and complex universes, reflecting the chaotic world we live in.
