A film by Dash Shaw

USA, 2021, 90'

As cryptozookeepers struggle to capture a Baku (a legendary dream-eating hybrid creature), they begin to wonder if they should display these rare beasts in the confines of a zoo, or if these mythical creatures should remain hidden and unknown. Second animated feature by Dash Shaw, designer of many graphic novels such as “BodyWorld”, “Doctors” or “Clue: Candlestick”. His first feature film, “My Entire High School Sinking into the Sea”, premiered in Berlin, in 2017, and, since then, he has been working on this “Cryptozoo”. Premiered at the last Sundance Festival, it features the vocal talents of Lake Bell, Michael Cera, Thomas Jay Ryan and Peter Stormare. Indiewire compares it to “Yellow Submarine” through “Jurassic Park” with a right dose of “Tomb Raider”.
