Ryan: Oscar-Winning Animated Film

Chris Landreth turned to animation as a second career and eventually landed an Oscar with Ryan (2004), a short animated film based on the life of Ryan Larkin, an artist who produced influential animated films during the 1960s, before falling into a personal downward spiral. You can revisit two of Larkin's animated films (both referenced in the film above) on NFB.CA. Start with the Oscar-nominated short, Walking, from 1969, and then turn to Street Musique (1972). And don't forget to download NFB's free iPad app where you can watch Ryan in a portable yet visually compelling format.

Note: The Landreth/Larkin films mentioned above have been added to our collection, 1,150 Free Movies Online: Great Classics, Indies, Noir, Westerns, etc..
