Academy Award winning animated film
"Morris Lessmore" is old-fashioned and cutting edge at the same time. Inspired in equal measures, by Hurricane Katrina, Buster Keaton, The Wizard of Oz, and a love for books, "Morris Lessmore" is a story of people who devote their lives to books and books who return the favor. It is also a poignant, humorous allegory about the curative powers of story that is now a best-selling children’s book and iPAD app. The award-winning author and illustrator William Joyce and co-director Brandon Oldenburg present a hybrid style of animation that harkens back to silent films and M-G-M Technicolor musicals.
