Castaway with Shaun Tan

Shaun Tan joined us this week to talk favourite films, as part of our regular Desert Island Flicks program. The author, filmmaker and ‘good drawer’ (according to his primary-school classmates) won an Oscar for his short animation The Lost Thing in 2011, so we were excited to discover the films that had informed his own work.

Shaun’s top five fittingly featured some lavishly-styled animations (The Triplets of Belleville, A Town Called Panic), two classics of the sci-fi genre, Alien and Brazil, and a Swedish film called You, the Living, which is made up of fifty short ‘sketches’ about the nature of existence.
