Through all the excitement and madness of Comic-Con 2012 I’ve noticed that a section of this event is rarely covered on movie sites. If you are like me, the idea of International Independent films getting their own hall that included panel discussions is something I have never even considered would be a part of Comic-Con. All along I thought the Con was about big budget Sci-Fi and Superhero movies, and that independent films were for the likes of Sundance or Tribeca film festivals.
What I would like to do is cast some light on the films/shorts that were featured this year beginning with the Animation Category.
Wolf Dog Tales
Director/Writer/Producer: Bernadine Santistevan
“The ancient ones believe that each animal has a special gift – a power. Among animals the wolf is said to be the great teacher. Inspired by ancient tales of animal wisdoms, this film takes us on a journey to the world of the Wolf Dog, who answers some of life’s greatest questions, reminding us of the many things we can learn from animals.”
‘Dziad i Baba’ (The Old Man and the Old Woman)
Director/Producer: Basia Goszczynska
“Two soul mates struggle with opposing fears of death and loneliness in this short dark comedy based on an old Polish fable by Józef Ignacy Kraszewski.”
Red Princess Blues: Genesis
Director/Writer: Alex Ferrari
“A 12-year-old girl finds herself in a strange country looking for her father. When a bookstore owner takes her in, she discovers mysterious items and The Tainted Novel, slowly beginning her journey to vengeance.”
