"...Utterly charming, even poignant viewing experience.” - Variety Magazine
CLAIRE is loosely based on the ancient Japanese fable KAGUYAHIME, most recently made into the animated feature THE TALE OF PRINCESS KAGUYU (2013). This version tells the story of a charming elderly male couple in the rural 1920s South (Short Mountain Radical Faeries JIM FERGUSON and MISH P. DeLIGHT ) that find an enchanting girl from the moon on their farm (TONIET GALLEGO) and adopt her as their own. ��Cardboard, wires, and all, CLAIRE is an homage to early cinema when moving pictures were CGI-free and not less than a bit naive when it was the image, the music, and the moviegoer’s own catalog of experiences which came together for an intimate journey through the dark.
