ASIFA Portland, PNCA & GKIDS welcome members and students to a screening of The Big Bad Fox & Other Tales with Director Benjamin Renner.
This screening is a private event open to ASIFA-Portland members (and the students of PNCA). Employees of LAIKA also enjoy membership by virtue of their company’s sponsorship. Please bring your employee badge. Others may sign-up / renew the $20 annual ASIFA-Portland membership, online or at the door.
GKIDS proudly presents The Big Bad Fox & Other Tales, another hilarious, heartwarming tale of animal misfits from the creators of the Academy Award®-nominated Ernest & Celestine.
The countryside isn’t always as calm and peaceful as it’s made out to be, and the animals on this farm are particularly agitated: a fox who mothers a family of chicks, a rabbit who plays the stork, and a duck who wants to be Santa Claus. Directors Benjamin Renner and Patrick Imbert adapt Renner’s own acclaimed graphic novel into a delirious, delightful triptych of interlocking stories, with a pacing and visual spontaneity that harkens back to classic Looney Tunes shorts and slapstick two-reelers.
