Marona's Fantastic Tale
Ends Thursday 9/3
"Mesmerizing...whimsical and poignant." – Carlos Aguilar, Los Angeles Times
"A cartoon that appreciates dogs as dogs, and treats one dog's life with the gravity and compassion we'd want expressed at a memorial service for a human of no importance who meant everything." – Matt Zoller Seitz, RogerEbert.com
This poetic and touching film from director Anca Damian follows an optimistic stray dog named Marona as she looks back on the human companions she has loved throughout her life. Delivered alongside dazzlingly colorful, sweeping designs produced in part by acclaimed artist Brecht Evens, Marona's Fantastic Tale is a life-affirming tale told with the patient, boundless love of a dog, and reminds us that happiness is a small thing.
