Introducing the Pearce Sisters – the stars of Aardman’s new short

Aardman Animation, the production company behind the hugely successful Wallace & Gromit films and the ever brilliant Creature Comforts (amongst many other things) sent a preview copy of their latest film which showcases a very different style of animation to that which Aardman fans might expect.

The new short, entitled The Pearce Sisters, directed by Aardman director Luis Cook, tells the black-hearted tale of two weather-beaten old spinsters who live on a remote strip of coast and eke out a rather dismal existence from catching and smoking fish. One day they heave a half-drowned sailor out of the sea and set about reviving him – but when he fails to appreciate their efforts, a dark and grim aspect of the sister’s way of life is revealed…

The film will be showing at various film festivals over the summer, including Annecy, Soho Shorts and Encounters.
