Peter & the Wolf
Directed by Suzie Templeton • 2006 • United Kingdom
Gorgeous stop-motion animation is set to the beloved music of Sergei Prokofiev in Suzie Templeton’s brilliant take on the classic fable, in which a lonely, bullied boy proves his bravery in an encounter with a wolf. Winner of the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film, this PETER & THE WOLF does away with the usual narration and lets the striking images and music speak for themselves, while the reimagined ending offers a thought-provoking new perspective on the story.
