'POUR 585' Tyranny grows from the indoctrinated in this Animated Short By Patrick Smith
In a dystopian world populated by animated wine glasses, a timid character tries to escape an important rite of passage. When he disrupts the standard pouring ritual, he discovers that individuality comes with a price. Pour 585 is a cautionary tale about the dangers of conformity that uses metaphor to illustrate the process of indoctrination. "Pour 585" has qualified for entry into the Oscar's short animated film category.
Directed and Animated by Patrick Smith Produced by Kaori Ishida Music by Leon Riskin
