Calamity (2020)

After winning the top prize at Annecy this year, Calamity should find fans internationally for its resplendent hand-drawn imagery, action-packed story and can-do attitude.

Sarah Ward, Screen Daily

A gorgeous, feminist coming-of-age western set in the American Far West.

An eventful road movie (with good guys and bad guys, conflicts over who should control the convoy, a resourceful and Huckleberry Finn-like orphan, soldiers, miners, a widow with a strong character, etc., all the elements of a self-respecting western) taking place against striking vistas, Calamity, a Childhood of Martha Jane Cannary favours the simplicity of the line in an explosion of colours.

Fabien Lemercier, Cineuropa

One of the most beautiful films of the year.

Benoit Berthe, The Animation Showcase

The screening is part of the Pulpettikino selection targeted solely for local kindergarten and school groups.
