The Flying Sailor, Amanda Forbis & Wendy Tilby, provided by the National Film Board of CanadaThe film The Flying Sailor by Wendy Tilby and Amanda Forbis, produced by the National Film Board of Canada (NFB), is nominated for an Oscar in the category of best animated short film.
Two ships collide in a harbour, an explosion shatters a city, and a sailor is blasted skyward. With ears ringing, blood pulsing and guts heaving, he soars high above the mayhem and towards the great unknown.
A bold blend of comedy, suspense and philosophy, The Flying Sailor is an exhilarating contemplation of the wonder and fragility of existence.
