Best of 2011- SULE AND THE CASE OF THE TINY SPARKS (U.S.)
This has been a year of wins and lost but this week we focus on the Best of 2011. Here we feature the best efforts and intentions that inspired us to bring forth our A game.
Congratulations to the Gibbs sisters, Shawnee and Shawnelle for winning the Best Animated Short Film in 2011 at the Montreal International Black Film Festival for SULE AND THE CASE OF THE TINY SPARKS (U.S.). Sule is based on a proverb with a humanitarian message inspired by Nelson Mandela. In the opinion of the jury: “The story of this film is as magnificent as it is inspiring. Proof that a small short can depict huge and beautiful moments.” Earlier the sisters created a mini series called Adopted by Aliens, see their blog. Now they are working on a graphic novel for young girls. So planning on seeing more of them in 2112.
