Engine 371: Progress!? Starts off cute and becomes much more than that. Even though you know where it’s going, it’s jazzy pacing and beautiful dream-scape design keeps it fast and fresh. (9.7 minutes)
Sleeping Betty: Every frame is funnier than the last in this period mash-up Sleeping Beauty story. Made from 7,000 perfect India ink drawings. So visually clever, you can watch it over and over, each time walking away with a new set of favorite moments. (9.13 minutes)
Bonus, thanks to the NFB: An interview with Sleeping Betty’s director Claude Cloutier.
