ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE, BEST ANIMATED SHORT FILM. Based on the true story of a father who takes his sons on a fishing trip into the untamed forests of northwest Montreal, this hilarious "documation" explores the joys of the road and the allures of fast food in the inimitable style of two-time Oscar-nominated animator Chris Hinton. "I like to document family madness using various media," says the director, "and I decided that this trip was far too full of pithy wit to waste." For parents, the true essence of family travel is driven home with riveting clarity.
