My Entire High School Sinking Into The Sea
What outcast high schooler hasn't daydreamed for a little disaster to shake things up?
This lo-fi animation from graphic novelist Dash Shaw is throwing the cool kids to the sharks and painting its own pastel and ink picture of growing up. When school newspaper writers Dash and Assaf are torn apart by the latter's budding romance with their editor, Verti, the geeky Dash is left ostracized and digging around for his next scoop. What he finds is that Tides High School is perilously close to crumbling into the ocean.
Which is harder, surviving homework and cliques, or sharks and jellyfish? My Entire High School Sinking Into The Sea is a bizarre and inventive animation unlike anything you'd ever see from Disney, but despite the body count, it's a sweet and slyly poignant trip through all the good and bad of getting through school.
"By far the most original animated movie of the year, or any other in recent memory." – IndieWire
