Pixar: La Luna

Tuesday, 9 August 10:45 am - 12:15 pm | West Building, Ballroom C/D

"La Luna" is the timeless fable of a young boy who is coming of age in the most peculiar of circumstances. Tonight is the very first time his Papa and Grandpa are taking him to work. In an old wooden boat, they row far out to sea, and with no land in sight, they stop and wait. A big surprise awaits the little boy as he discovers his family's most unusual line of work. Should he follow the example of his Papa, or his Grandpa? Will he be able to find his own way in the midst of their conflicting opinions and timeworn traditions?

Following the Canadian premiere screening of "La Luna", its director, Enrico Casarosa discusses the journey that led him to create this very personal short and demonstrates the singularly artistic style by which the film was crafted.
