Hothouse 2 - A Single Tear
An "epic" adventure featuring a diamond guy, a dog fish and a boot. Audacious, bold, and somewhat bewildering, director Amy Lockhart uses cutouts, drawings and collage captured and manipulated as digital multi-plane animation to conjure up her whimsical world and to tell her magical environmental fairy tale. This animated short was made for Hothouse 2, the NFB's program for emerging filmmakers, whose central theme was "Water and Our Relationship to It.".
