This is one of my favorite Rooftop short animations ever, so I am glad that our friends over at Animation Block Party have it hosted online. The short tells the story of a self-defeated Marbled Rock Crab and his species’ 120 million years of tragedy. It might seem like an metaphor for the blind obstinacy of the French, but when we showed it on a roof in Montreal the Quebecois in attendance thought it was hilarious, so they found some truth in the story or they totally didn’t get the joke.
