TIFF 2010: Watch The Stunning Trailer For ‘Little Theatres: Homage to the Mineral of Cabbage’

I’m a huge fan of short films and so I try my best to see as many as I can. One of the films playing in the Short Cuts Canada program at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival is Stephanie Dudley’s

Little Theatres: Homage to the Mineral of Cabbage. For fans of animation, this is a must see.

Here is the description from the film’s official website. Watch the stunning trailer below. Enjoy!

Little Theatres: Homage to the Mineral of Cabbage is a short stop-motion film based on the English translation of Erín Moure’s poem, Homenaxe ao mineral do repolo (Homage to the Mineral of Cabbage.) The poem is the second in a series of six by Erín in her award-winning book, Little Theatres. Each poem is an homage to a simple, humble food, such as potatoes, onions, and cabbage. The poems examine our relationship to food, and draw new insights to how these basic foods relate to life, as well as how we relate to each other. In looking more closely at the simple, everyday elements of life, we learn to appreciate their beauty.

The film Little Theatres is an interpretation of what Little Theatres are. It is an exploration of layers: layers of space, and layers of words, both spoken and written. The exploration begins and ends with a simple cabbage.

Stop motion is the medium here, showcasing a world of miniature, handmade sets and puppets, that are animated one frame at a time. The film’s voiceover is in the poem’s original language, Galician. Its translation is contained within the film. The English words unfold as graphic elements within the scenes, as the poem is being spoken.
