Adam Elliot: Mary and Max
Adam Elliot: Mary and Max

Oscar-winning stop motion animator, Adam Elliot (Mary and Max, Harvie Krumpet, Uncle, Brother, Cousin) has produced a comic, emotional and contemplative body of work that challenges viewer’s perceptions of mental illness. In his self-described, “clayographies”, Elliot’s misfit protagonists are not judged. Instead, through Elliot’s objective eyes we see them merely as different, not better, not worse, just different. These ‘misfits’ can frustrate, scare and confuse, but they can also display a humility, creativity, imagination and compassion that make Elliot’s films stand out, earning them countless awards including OIAF’s Grand Prize for Best Animated Picture for Mary and Max in 2009. Adam Elliot will be in attendance.
