Asphalt WatchesCanada, 2013 : Alberta Premiere
This autobiographical psychedelic animated road movie - and TIFF award winner - from Seth Scriver and Shayne Ehman follows Bucktooth Cloud and Skeleton Hat as they embark on a hilarious and frightening road trip, encountering strange people and happenings along the Canadian highway – a psychotic hamburger-loving Santa Claus from Calgary, a polite young man with a knife in his belly and a barrage of out-of-control hosers.
On their odyssey, Bucktooth Cloud and Skeleton Hat inadvertently take part in everything from a domestic rave to a local beauty contest. As they make their way across Canada, we see a country full of wonderful freaks with amazing stories all set to head-bopping beats. Get ready for a bizarre and loopy road trip across Canada, as it’s never been seen before! Visual artists Seth Scriver and Shayne Ehman spent seven years turning their real-life adventures hitchhiking along the Trans-Canada Highway into this hilarious, grotesque, and utterly original adult animated feature.
In conjunction with the screening, AVALANCHE! Institute of Contemporary Art is proud to present a one-night-only exhibition of collaborative drawings by Seth Scriver and Shayne Ehman, opening Thursday April 10th at 9PM. Admission is free and open to the public. Facebook event page here
