Film Website



Bill Plympton is a FILMFEST HAMBURG eteran, five of whose films have run at the festival. Plympton’s animated films explicitly target adults, and rumour has it that he turned down a seven figure offer by the Walt Disney Company in the 1990s. His fifth feature-length film does away with dialogues and tells the tale of an involuntary angel, unwilling to face both his tasks and his ever-growing wings. A feast for the eyes and ears of fans and connoisseurs of high-brow animated film art.
