Wednesday with Goddard has won the Special Jury Award and the Public award at Les Sommets du Cinéma d’Animation, in Montreal.
Wednesday with Goddard is Nicolas Ménard’s latest short film featuring the rather deflated and introspective Eugene, on his desperate search to find God. His search takes him to beautiful flower fields, churches and finally up to the top of a very windy mountain. He meets a crazy priest and falls in love with the emotionless Evelyn – a love which is, sadly, unrequited. Manshen Lo’s beautiful and delicate pencil drawings compliment the bold colours and unusual shapes of Nicolas’s 2D animated characters in this highly amusing tale.
Wednesday with Goddard will be showing on Channel 4 on December 15th at midnight as part of their 'Random Acts' series.
