fantastic-mr-fox

We’re pleased as punch that Portland’s own Mark Gustafson, who worked as the animation director on FANTASTIC MR. FOX, will be in attendance at our Friday, August 22 screening of the film.  Mark will share his behind the scenes perspective on the making of the film.  We hope you’ll join us tomorrow night at 8:30pm for this exciting evening in the Whitsell Auditorium.  The film also screens on Saturday at 5pm without Mr. Gustafson.

Anderson’s first animated film, adapted from a story by legendary children’s author Roald Dahl, is a stop-motion thrill ride through the secret world of animals by way of the terror that is factory farming. Mr. Fox (voiced by George Clooney) and his wife (Meryl Streep), after being trapped following a disastrous farm raid, move to the base of a tree with their gloomy son Ash (Jason Schwartzman) in search of a more peaceful life. However, their tree lies next to a large farming facility run by three suspect farmers, who quickly initiate a scheme to flush the foxes out and hunt them. Naturally, Mr. Fox and crew are not so easily duped, teaming up with their fellow animal friends to launch a counterattack. (87 mins.)



FANTASTIC MR. FOX screens Friday, August 22 at 8:30pm and Saturday, August 23 at 5pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum).  The film is being presented as part of our Wes’s World: Wes Anderson and His Influences series.
Tickets are available online or at the door.
