Geek Cinema Has a Heart: After Oz

Family GeekMom TV and Movies

Ever find yourself wondering what happens after “happily ever after”? What does that even mean?! Vancouver Film School student Percy Kiyabu didn’t wait for a little dog to come along and peel back that curtain. His animated short film, After Oz, gives us a glimpse of the Tin Man’s happy ending.

It may be brief, but this little love story is not as simple as it seems; there’s passion and betrayal, heartbreak and hope. All that, and nobody says a word! Rather like a film from the silent era, After Oz does most of its storytelling through hyperbolic pantomime and music. There’s a bit of slapstick humor in there, too.

After Oz is fun for all ages.
