Description

Striving to make the greatest animated film of all time, visionary animator Richard Williams (Who Framed Roger Rabbit) toiled for more than a quarter-century on his masterpiece, only to have it torn from his hands. Filmmaker Kevin Schreck has woven together mindblowing animation, rare archival footage, and exclusive interviews with key animators and artists who worked with Williams on his ill-fated magnum opus to bring this legendary story to the screen. A tale of creative genius gone horribly awry, Persistence of Vision is the untold story of the greatest animated film never made.

Toronto animators Tara Donovan and Greg Duffell (both Richard Williams Studio alumni) will be in attendance for Q&As on January 10, 11, and 12. Director Kevin Schreck will participate in these Q&As via Skype.

Co-presented by Toronto Animation Arts Festival International (TAAFI).
