Generation Extreme - DVD

Top of page

You'll be bowled over by this new wave of animation films. These talented directors may be young but they're not wet behind the ears. Nor are they afraid to jump in and stir things up. Their view of the world -- from the strange customs of the Middle Ages to the vicissitudes of daily life -- is audacious, ironic and often critical. And they have an amazing sense of spectacle. This compilation of recent short films, varied in style and technique, proves that animation still lends itself to feats of aesthetic and technical derring-do. Hang onto your shorts! The new wave is coming!
