With trusty scissors in hand, Mr. Paper makes choice cuts to craft his ideal world. Blooming with artful animation and wistful storytelling, Emily was spotlighted as the Netherlands’ entry for Oscar consideration. Then three very different kids, all friends, find out what it truly means to walk a day in each other’s shoes… and legs, and torsos in this hilarious International Emmy-award winner. Inventive design, storytelling and themes combine to make this Dutch Animation Celebration a whole lot of fun!
