Village of Idiots

Village of Idiots

Based on a Jewish folk tale adapted by playwright John Lazarus, this animated short tells the story of Shmendrik, a simpleton living in a small Polish village. Weary of daily life in his native Chelm, Shmendrik sets out on a quest for knowledge that brings him to a new Chelm, a place eerily reminiscent of his old Chelm. An amusing take on our tendency to romanticize what we don't have.

    Excellent film. A flavour to the philosophical angst that expresses the culture so wonderfully. Ryan Neily of Halifax

    I enjoyed watching it. Great art work, characters, good flow and tempo. The story was interesting in the sense that it could have many meanings like - all you need is a new perspective on your situation. The innocence of village life was captured well and gave it the beauty of a simple life. Well done.
