Synopsis: When elderly widow Louise misses the last train out of the seaside resort she summers in, she finds herself stranded in a ghost town of empty buildings and waxing and waning tides. She soon becomes a genteel Robinson Crusoe, building a hut on the beach and settling in with a raggedy talking dog and the memories of her childhood. A rare example of animation primarily aimed at an adult audience, "Louise by the Shore" is a welcome reminder that animation can be a medium for quiet lyricism and characters rarely given center stage in live action film.

A discussion will follow the film.

Festival passes to all films and events are $35. Tickets and festival passes are available online or at the door.
