Video line-up:

Big Mouth | 2012 | 8 min
This animated short tells the story of Trudy, a little girl who is equal parts truthful and rude. A bright-minded and quick-witted child, Trudy has an unfiltered and deeply curious way of looking at the world. Here, events force her to question what it means to speak the truth, and comes to understand how our differences make us unique.

Christopher, Please Clean Up Your Room! Vincent Gauthier| 2001 | 6 min
This short animated film stars Christopher, a terrific kid with one major problem… he’s messy! His shoes smell funky, his fish bowl stinks, and even the cockroaches can’t stand it. In the chaos of Christopher’s room, his fish rise up from their scummy bowl in protest. They enlist the help of a fastidious cockroach. Together, the fish and the roaches hatch a plan that will change Christopher’s life and his cleaning habits forever.

Peep and the big wide world | Kaj Pindal | 1988 | 34 min
This series of three 10-minute films features Peep the chicken, Chirp the robin and Quack the duck. On their travels, they meet a cat, a ladybug, a turtle and a frog who speaks from both sides of his mouth. Narrated by Peter Ustinov, these films are great for young children aged 3–5.

Mind me good now | Chris Cormier, Derek Cummings | 2005 | 8 min
