Pinata

Australia (MIFF 2005, animation)

Director: Mike Hollands

Piñata, by local animator Mike Hollands, premiered at Annecy and tells a classical tale about a stuffed donkey's search for respect. One small, feisty lolly-stuffed burro has had enough! But one small, determined girl just won't give up.
