John and Michael

Hooray. My friend Shira’s amazing film ‘John and Michael’ is finally available on the NFB web site.

From the site:

This animated short pays tribute to two men with Down’s syndrome who shared an intimate and profoundly loving relationship that deeply affected the filmmaker. Narrator Brian Davis, also intellectually challenged, brings the men alive with great sensitivity. 
 

Shira is an incredibly talented animator. In this film she uses modeling clay on glass to animate the story. The images are gorgeous.

Many more stills from the film are available at the NFB web site.

Shira’s next film should be finished soon. I can’t wait to see it.
