Kirsten Lepore: Move Mountain

YES!!! Kirsten Lepore has finally released her phenomenal CalArts graduation short online for all to enjoy!

'Move Mountain' is a beautifully crafted piece of animation addressing illness, perseverance, and our connection to everything around us. The seemingly simplistic lead-character design and parred down narrative belies the films poignant subtleties and the emotional highs and lows the protagonist experiences on her journey.

The most heartwarming scene is the primal-dance sequence, in which Kirsten celebrates her craft alongside her friends. The party sees character contributions from all her independent animation chums, contemporaries and collaborators, including David OReilly, Michael Please, Sara Pocock and Julia Pott!
