Cult animator and Academy Award nominee filmmaker Don Hertzfeldt has combined his recent "Bill" trilogy of short films into one seamless, beautiful, darkly comedic feature, blending traditional animation, experimental optical effects, trick photography, and new digital hybrids printed out one frame at a time. In the full feature, a series of dark and troubling events force Bill to reckon with the meaning of his life—or the lack thereof. The three shorts that form the core of the program, "Everything Will Be OK," "I Am So Proud of You" and "It’s Such A Beautiful Day" toured film festivals around the world, with "Everything Will Be OK" winning Best US Short Film at Sundance in 2007. For its theatrical presentations, the feature will also include a few new surprises.
