Based on animator Pamela Ribon’s memoir, the film - an innovative mix of collage, rotoscope, archival footage, and drawings - chronicles a young girl’s determination to lose her virginity in the early 90s in the outskirts of Houston.
The Annecy Cristal Winner and Oscar Shortlisted animated short My Year of Dicks can now be viewed on VIMEO (it's a Staff Pick) or below on AWN. Written by and based on the memoir by animator Pamela Ribon (Moana, Ralph Breaks the Internet) and directed by Sara Gunnarsdóttir, the film is a humorous autobiographical account of a young woman’s determination to lose her virginity, despite the pathetic pickings in the outskirts of Houston in the early 90s.
As described by AWN’s own Animation Pimp, Chris Robinson, “with echoes of Waking Life and assorted coming-of-age films (Superbad, Dazed and Confused), My Year of Dicks (which features contributions from an assortment of indie animators like Brian Smee and Amanda Bonaiuto) is a visually innovative mix of collage, rotoscope, archival footage, and drawings that all enhance the clash between imagination and real life.”
It's received considerable industry praise – relax and enjoy!
