World of Animation: My Entire High School Sinking into the Sea

Are you an Orange County student currently in Grades 7th through 12th?  If so, State Street Foundation and The Frida Cinema invite you to join us for our FREE World of Animation series, which takes place Tuesdays at 3:30pm from October 5th – November 23rd!

On Tuesday, November 23rd, join us for My Entire High School Sinking into the Sea, an animated teen dramedy! Jason Schwartzman and Reggie Watts voice Dash and Assaf, two sophomores at a school located on a cliff edge just over a fault line. The two fall out over mutual love interest Verti (Maya Rudolph), but bigger problems arise when the planned opening of the school’s auditorium goes horribly wrong and the building–and everyone in it–topples over the cliff and into the ocean.

“Mythologizing one’s adolescence has rarely been driven home with such imaginative force.” – Steve Ericksoon, Gay City News

“Its lava-lamp visuals are consistently intoxicating, blurring the boundaries between physical spaces in ways that feel fitting to the scenario.” – Glenn Heath Jr., San Diego CityBeat

“I feel that John Hughes would approve.” – Steven Prokopy, Third Coast Review
