Academy Award® nominated for Best Animated Feature Film. A special prerecorded 30-min Q&A and Puppetry demonstration with Guillermo del Toro follows the screening.
Academy Award®-winning director Guillermo del Toro and award winning stop-motion legend Mark Gustafson reimagine the classic Carlo Collodi tale of the fabled wooden boy with a whimsical tour de force that finds Pinocchio on an enchanted adventure that transcends worlds and reveals the life-giving power of love.
“A wondrously affecting work, PINOCCHIO becomes a magnum opus for del Toro that channels his interests and beliefs long present in his oeuvre but spun with a luminous new gravitas…. Know that if the art of making movies resembles magic, this is one of its greatest incantations.” —Carlos Aguilar, rogerebert.com “PINOCCHIO is a giant middle finger to the Disneyfication of both the original Carlo Collodi story, and of fairy tales in general. Though this is a movie the whole family can see and get something out of, it never tones down the story for kids, nor does it talk down to them.” —Rafael Motamayor, IndieWire “Filmmakers del Toro and Mark Gustafson have taken a classic tale and created something fresh, surprising, moving and absolutely worthwhile…. The story of Pinocchio has never been told quite like this.” —Kathy Michelle Chacon, Paste Magazine
