Kommen die Babys in Amerika aus Cola-Dosen? Oder aus Bierkrügen wie in Australien? fragt Mary ihren Freund Max. Der weiß prompt die Antwort: Babys kommen in Amerika aus Eiern, die je nach Religionszugehörigkeit von Rabbinern, katholische Nonnen oder Prostituierten gelegt werden. Das ist der Auftakt für eine ganz besondere Freundschaft zwischen zwei genialen Antihelden: Mary und Max.
Diese außergewöhnliche Freundschaft verbindet das neugierige und einsame Mädchen Mary aus Australien mit dem gewissenhaften, schrulligen Max, der in New York lebt. Der Film erzählt die Geschichte der beiden ebenso komisch wie einfühlsam und mit viel Liebe zum Detail. Die Lebensumstände von Mary und Max sind nicht gerade einfach, oft fühlen sie sich fremd und missverstanden, aber ihre großartige Freundschaft gibt ihnen Sicherheit und Halt. Die Fragen, die sie sich gegenseitig stellen, sind witzig und zugleich essentiell: Wie ist das eigentlich: Schrumpfen Schafe, wenn es regnet?
MARY & MAX ist ein skurriler und anrührender Animationsfilm mit den witzigen Knetfiguren des mit einem Oscar® ausgezeichneten Regisseurs Adam Elliot.
Die Machart des Films erinnert an WALLACE UND GORMIT, doch als Paar sind Mary und Max so ausgefallen und originell wie HAROLD UND MAUDE.
MARY & MAX war der Eröffnungsfilm des Sundance Filmfestivals 2009 und gewann zahlreichen weitere Preise: u.a. den Preis für den besten Animations-Langfilm in Stuttgart, den Feature Film Award in Annecy und den Gläsernen Bären auf der Berlinale 2009.
Mary und Max wurde als Eröffnungsfilm zum 2009 Sundance Film Festival ausgewählt und nahm am Wettbewerb der Berlinale 2009 Generation 14plus teil. Der Knetanimationsfilm ist das Werk des Academy-Award®-Preisträgers, Drehbuchautors und Regisseurs Adam Elliot und der Produzentin Melanie Coombs, mit den Stimmen von Toni Collette, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Barry Humphries und Eric Bana.

Go to www.childrenofinvention**** for theatrical showtimes or to pre-order DVD! -- One of Filmmaker Magazines "25 New Faces of Independent Film," writer-director Tze Chun makes his feature film debut with one of the most-awarded and best-reviewed films of the year. CHILDREN OF INVENTION is by turns humorous and heartbreaking, an "edge-of-your-seat family drama" (Spout) thats both powerfully moving and rigorously intelligent."(Boston Phoenix).
After being evicted, hardworking single mom Elaine Cheng (Cindy Cheung, Lady in the Water) tries to maintain a normal life for her children, Raymond and Tina. Elaine juggles a number of jobs, including working for a questionable pyramid scheme. When Elaine doesnt return home one night, nobody knows the kids are home alone, and they are left to fend for themselves. As the days pass, Raymond, a budding inventor, realizes he needs to come up with a plan to take care of his little sister.
Referencing both the mortgage meltdown and suburban Ponzi schemes, the film finds delicate moments of beauty and grace as its child heroes are forced to make their way (Filmmaker Magazine). Featuring gifted child actors--off-the-charts cute, refreshingly free of Hollywood precociousness (LA Weekly), CHILDREN OF INVENTION is "as close to cinematic purity as one is likely to see this year" (Film Society of Lincoln Center), a timely drama about the influence of the adult world on children and resilience in hard times.
CHILDREN OF INVENTION made its world premiere at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival and has won 15 film festival awards: Grand Jury Prizes for Best Narrative Feature at the 2009 Newport International Film Festival, Independent Film Festival Boston, and Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival; Grand Jury Prize for Best Film and Best Narrative Feature Prize at San Diego Asian Film Festival; Best Narrative Feature at the Ojai-Ventura Film Festival; Special Jury Prizes at the 2009 Sarasota, Nashville, Indie Memphis, Los Angeles Asian Pacific, and San Francisco International Asian American Film Festivals; Honorable Mention for Editing at the 2009 Woodstock Film Festival; the George C. Lin Emerging Filmmaker Award at the 2009 DC APA Film Festival; the Puma Emerging Filmmaker Award at the 2009 Hawaii International Film Festival; and the Visionary Award at the 2009 Austin Asian American Film Festival. It was the Opening Night Film at five film festivals and the Closing Night Film at two film festivals in 2009.
Winner of the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, The Cove follows a high-tech dive team on a mission to discover the truth about the international dolphin capture trade as practiced in Taiji, Japan. Utilizing state-of-the-art techniques, including hidden microphones and cameras in fake rocks, the team uncovers how this small seaside village serves as a horrifying microcosm of massive ecological crimes happening worldwide.
The Cove exposes not only the tragedy of dolphin slaughtering in Japan, but also the dangerously high levels of mercury in dolphin meat and seafood, the cruelty in capturing dolphins for entertainment, and the depletion of our oceans fisheries by worldwide seafood consumption. We also see how the mandate of the International Whaling Commission has been manipulated by the Japanese Fisheries Agency for its benefit and its subsequent effect on the rest of the world.
