AUNT HILDA! (2013) [feature]

(MIFF 2014 )

"An inventive hand-drawn comedy … Aunt Hilda! offers up plenty of raucous animation while warning viewers about the dangers of messing with Mother Nature." – Hollywood Reporter

When a ruthless agricultural company announces it has created a genetically modified crop that it claims will eradicate world hunger, eco-warrior Aunt Hilda knows something isn't right. As the mutant plants start consuming everything in their path, Hilda must join forces with one of the scientists who made the GMO in a race against the clock to destroy it.

From the studio behind the Academy Award-nominated A Cat in Paris comes a rollicking and timely new adventure about protecting our environment and standing up to corporate greed. Daringly animated and filled with surprising flourishes, Aunt Hilda! is bold, funny and endlessly defiant.

MIFF recommends ages 12+
