Synopsis

This delightful story of people who devote their lives to books, and books who return the favor, is inspired in equal measures by Hurricane Katrina, Buster Keaton and The Wizard of Oz. Morris’s books are blown away in a storm and his library is reconstituted by whimsical volumes that fly like birds. As he grows old he realizes that his flying books have the power to outlive him.

 Using a hybrid style of animation techniques — miniatures, computer animation, 2D animation — it harkens back to silent films and technicolor musicals while being old-fashioned and cutting edge at the same time.

 Winner of the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film.
