— Liberdade, que estais no céu...
Rezava o padre-nosso que sabia,
A pedir-te, humildemente,
O pio de cada dia.
Mas a tua bondade omnipotente
Nem me ouvia.
— Liberdade, que estais na terra...
E a minha voz crescia
Mas um silêncio triste sepultava
A fé que ressumava
Até que um dia, corajosamente,
Olhei noutro sentido, e pude, deslumbrado,
O pão da minha fome.
— Liberdade, que estais em mim,
Santificado seja o vosso nome.
Miguel Torga, in 'Diário XII'
Winner of the 2004 Oscar for Best Animated Short Film, Harvie Krumpet is the biography of an ordinary man seemingly cursed with bad luck. From being born with Tourette Syndrome to getting struck by lightning; from having his testicle removed to developing Alzheimer's disease; Harvie's troubles seem unending ! Yet, Harvie learns many lessons about life and enjoys its many fruits. He finds love, freedom, nudity and ultimately the true meaning of what it is to be human.
Produced by Melodrama Pictures with the support of SBS Independent, Film Victoria and the Australian Film Commission, the picture features the voices of Geoffrey Rush (PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN), Kamahl (NED KELLY), Julie Forsyth (BABE) and John Flaus (THE DISH), and was written, directed and animated by Adam Elliot, produced by Melanie Coombs, edited by Bill Murphy and sound by Peter Walker and the team at Soundwaves.
Nominated for an Oscar and for a BAFTA award, Jasper Morello is a short feature made in a unique style of silhouette animation developed by director Anthony Lucas and inspired by the work of authors Edgar Alan Poe and Jules Verne.
