Hornet has announced that Peter Sluszka’s stop motion film ‘Hardboiled’ has been officially selected for screening at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival.
Hardboiled is a stop-motion animated satire of the classic urban American crime drama in which food and felonies are inseparable. Gritty, noir-ish, and absurd, the story follows the exploits of tough-talking detectives Harry and Callaham (an egg and a slice of ham) as they frustrate their boss, shake down a sleazy bacon pimp, and tangle with a megalomaniacal strawberry.
For 12+ years, Hornet director Peter Sluszka has been hard at work bringing Hardboiled to life.
According to Peter: “After years of chipping away and at times obsessing over Hardboiled, I'm thrilled to release it into the wild. This has been a passion project that entailed thousands of hours of labour to create. Starting with a concept, a few simple character designs, and perhaps a wilfully naïve optimism, the journey to completion took well over a decade.”
Hardboiled’s selection and screening at Tribeca Film Festival marks the film’s official world premiere. Hornet couldn’t be happier for Peter. It’s been a long, sometimes arduous, oftentimes amazing, always humorous road to get here.view more - Awards and EventsHornet, Wed, 20 Apr 2022 08:03:40 GMT
