A Special Screening and Workshop
The 2014 Chicago InternationalChildren'sFilm Festival
& LAIKA Studios Present
A special screening and workshop SEE IT BEFORE THE FEST!
Saturday, October 18th, 2014
is a comedic fable that unfolds in Cheesebridge, a posh Victorian-era
town obsessed with wealth, class and the stinkiest of fine cheeses.
Beneath its cobblestone streets dwell the Boxtrolls, foul monsters who
crawl out of the sewers at night and steal what the townspeople hold
most dear: their children and their cheeses. At least that's the legend
residents have always believed.
truth, the Boxtrolls are an underground cavern-dwelling community of
quirky and lovable oddballs who wear recycled cardboard boxes the way
turtles wear their shells. The Boxtrolls have raised an orphaned human
boy since infancy as one of their dumpster-diving and mechanical
junk-collecting own. When the Boxtrolls are targeted by a villainous
pest exterminator who is bent on eradicating them as his ticket to
Cheesebridge society, the kind-hearted band of tinkerers must turn to
their adopted charge and an adventurous rich girl to bridge two worlds
amidst the winds of change-and cheese.
With special post screening Q&A with LAIKA's Mark Shapiro.
