Saturday Morning Cartoons: “Ryan” and “Walking”

Ryan: A heartbreaking documentary on Ryan Larkin, the highly influential Canadian animator, and his bout with substance abuse and depression. Created in CG to a series of interviews, we see Larkin’s mental illness through physical holes and scaring.  (13.55 minutes)

Walking: In painful contrast to the above, Ryan Larkin’s joyful Oscar nominated film that celebrates people’s individuality by observing, simply, how we walk. (5.6 minutes.)
