TIFF Kids Talk Film: RUSTY KNIGHT, An Animated Recycling Comedy
Willem and Miranda are back with another short video review from the TIFF Kids film festival. This time it is the German animated 'recycling' comedy Rusty Knight. While it may be a tad simpler and more obvious than your Pixars or your Laikas, the kids take comfort in a less challenging, more relaxing bit of entertainment clearly aimed at the younger set.
Twitch has been on the Internet long enough that many of its writing staff have children old enough to understand and consume media in a way that is both raw and fresh. It might even come with an inkling of consideration afterwards -- it's true that many of us fall in love with the movies when we are very young.
In the past, Willem (age 11) and his younger sister Miranda (age 9) have discussed films ranging from Wes Anderson's Fantastic Mr. Fox to Jacques Tati's Playtime to Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey. They also did a 15 part series on Studio Ghibli which can be found in the Twitch archives or at the Kids Talk Film Channel on Vimeo.
Rusty Knight screens at TIFF Kids Wednesday April 16, 12:30pm at TIFF Lightbox.
