When the Day Breaks
Directed by Amanda Forbis, Wendy Tilby - 1999.
In this animated short, Ruby the pig seeks affirmation in the city around
her after witnessing the accidental death of a stranger... and finds it in
surprising places. With deft humour and finely rendered detail, When the
Day Breaks illuminates the links that connect our urban lives, while evoking
the promise and fragility of a new day. Winner of over 40 prizes from
around the world, the film also features singer Martha Wainwright.
