July 6 4:15 pm

Feature Narrative | 2021 | USA | 95 min | Directed by Dash Shaw | Madman

Australian Premiere

Winner Special Mention of the Generation 14plus International Jury, Berlin International Film Festival, 2021

Winner NEXT Innovator Award, Sundance Film Festival, 2021

A beautiful and bizarre animated psychedelic infused feature that follows Cryptozookeepers who are trying to capture a dream-eating legendary animal called the Baku. But there are others who are also pursuing these mythical creatures.

Dash Shaw – whose previous directorial credits include My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea (2016) and whose animation credits include 13 Reasons Why – delivers a beautifully realised feature in Cryptozoo

A genuinely unique film that has been described as a “psychedelic paean to biodiversity and acceptance” by the Hollywood Reporter, and drawn comparisons to Yellow Submarine and Fantastic Planet from Jumpcut Online. 

A fantastically realised work.

Please note this film is not for children.
