CRYPTOZOO

by Dash Shaw. 2021. 95 min.

*Mature content. Viewer discretion advised.

Visionary comic book writer/artist/filmmaker Dash Shaw’s vibrant animated feature follows cryptozookeepers through a richly-drawn hallucinatory world as they struggle to capture a baku (a legendary dream-eating hybrid creature) and begin to wonder if they should display these rare beasts in the confines of a zoo, or if the mythical creatures should remain hidden and unknown. Featuring the voices of Lake Bell, Zoe Kazan, Michael Cera, Louisa Krause, Peter Stormare, Thomas Jay Ryan, Grace Zabriskie and Angeliki Papoulia, Cryptozoo is written and directed by Shaw, with Jane Samborski directing the stunning animation.

Post-screening discussion with Dash Shaw, moderated by Bill Kartalopoulos. Thank you Magnolia Pictures for helping organize this event!
