We Are the Strange

2007 NR

Using a technique he calls "str8nime," a blend of eight-bit video graphics and Japanese anime, filmmaker M. dot Strange animates a fantasy about good vs. evil in which Blue, a downtrodden young woman, becomes fast friends with Emmm. On a quest for ice cream, they soon discover that monsters have taken over the city. Engulfed by evil, Blue and Emmm struggle to survive as an uncanny hero named Rain arrives to save them.
