A Town Called Panic
OHIO PREMIERE Stephane Aubier and Vincent Patar, Belgium, 2009
Thu, Dec 3, 2009 7 PM
Cowboy, Indian, and Horse all improbably live together, and that's the least of the whimsical absurdities on display in this delightful European Claymation.

The unlikely roommates meet up with a giant mechanical penguin, parachuting cows, and a secret underwater civilization populated by pointy-headed bad guys who wear diving suits and goggles and look really, really weird. You'll have to see the strange situations of this world to believe them! This is the first film based on a popular French TV series of the same name that aired on Nicktoons (courtesy of Aardman Animation, the creators of Wallace and Gromit). It was also the first stop-motion animated feature film to be included in the official selection of the Cannes Film Festival.

In French with English subtitles. Occasional impolite language. Recommended for ages 8 and up. (75 mins., 35mm)
