Liberty and Justice: A Cautionary Tale in the Land of the Free

What happens when a pair of lost citizens wander in the deep dark woods, in search of a leader? In this satirical take-off of the traditional folktale, “Hansel and Gretel”, the wordless story follows protagonists Liberty and Justice as they negotiate the challenges of today’s unique political landscape, while being shadowed by a persistent Twitter bird. The film uses stop-motion animation to create a compelling and beautifully rendered narrative, featuring handmade puppets and sets by illustrator and animator Salley Mavor. She and her husband Rob Goldsborough combine their artistic and technical talents to bring this cautionary tale to life.

Directed by Salley Mavor and Rob Goldsborough (USA)
