In 2002, singer-songwriter Laurie Gordon approached animator Ryan Larkin to do some drawings for her band’s video. The two became friends and, later, Larkin began to develop some ideas for a film based on “comical experiences I’ve had during my many years as a ‘panhandler’ in Montreal.” The film, Spare Change, was completed by Gordon and a team of dedicated young animators following Larkin’s death in 2007. The result is a surreal journey through Larkin’s own powerful and ultimately liberating imagination. The film features original works by Larkin, including character drawings, flip book animations from earlier in his career and several of Larkin’s own paintings.
