Hong Kong, 2001 (MIFF 2003, Animation Gallery)

Director: Toe Yuen

Winner of the Grand Prix at this years Annecy Animation Festival, and the FIPRESCI award at the Hong Kong International Film Festival, My Life as McDull is the inventive, satirical story of a little pig from Hong Kong who has aspirations of moving beyond the borders of his hometown. McDull lives with his mother, who wishes her son to succeed, but our hero doesn't seem to possess any special talents. He strives on, with dreams of exotic journeys and hopes of great sporting accomplishments. Filled with off-centre episodes and a crew of wonderfully inventive characters, My Life as McDull is a charmer.
