“Edmond was a Donkey” by Franck Dion
The National Film Board of Canada’s seventh annual Get Animated! program runs to November 30 with a stellar line-up of animated shorts. The must-see highlight of the group has to be “Edmond was a Donkey” by Paris illustrator/director Franck Dion who also wrote and edited the film. A calm and beautifully rendered dystopian tale of social conformity told with grace and charm, “Edmond was a Donkey” has garnered over two dozen awards, including the special jury prize at Annecy in 2012.
