Screenings

Synopsis

A ship’s captain lives in an old submarine, which is inexplicably – and precariously – perched at the tippy-top of a mountain, far, far above the ground. Keeping the craft balanced is a neverending, delicate – and at times hilarious – challenge. One day, a seagull comes to visit and the equilibrium of the ship is threatened and the captain must take drastic measures to preserve his home. Plagued by guilt, he finds he must make a life-changing decision.

About the Directors

Liam Harris obtained his Master’s Degree in Directing Animation from the National Film and Television School in London. From a young age, he was inspired to work in hand-drawn animation, having grown up with the likes of Raymond Briggs’s illustrations, Glenn Keane’s paper-drawn Disney characters and Joanna Quinn’s energetic yet fluent pencil-on-paper animation, a traditional style he has since adopted into his filmmaking. His award-winning works include ‘Fourth Assessment Report’ (2012), ‘The Box-Cart’ (2013), ‘Torn’ (2015) and ‘Perched’.
