Our screening on 22 February is the latest in our discussion series, In the Works, hosted by Oscar nominated composer Gary Yershon. Gary’s guest is Tristan Oliver (BSC), an internationally renowned cinematographer known for his work on animated films, including Chicken Run, Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Isle of Dogs, Loving Vincent, and Fantastic Mr. Fox.
Fantastic Mr. Fox is the story of a clever, quick, nimble, and exceptionally well-dressed wild animal. A compulsive chicken thief turned newspaper reporter, Mr. Fox settles down with his family in a new foxhole in a beautiful tree – directly adjacent to three enormous poultry farms owned by three ferociously vicious farmers: Boggis, Bunce, and Bean. Mr. Fox simply cannot resist. Wes Anderson’s adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic children’s novel is a meticulous work of stop-motion animation featuring vibrant performances by George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Jason Schwartzman, Willem Dafoe, Michael Gambon, and Bill Murray.
