Turtle’s Hungry, is a 14 minute shadow puppet film adapted from an African folktale. The story is about an eager turtle who has a reputation as a trickster. Turtle is hungry so he finds a way to trick the birds into teaching him to fly to the clouds in order to receive the ‘cloud food’. We are seeking funds for the next series of films combining the ancient art of shadow puppetry and film technology to create a cross cultural DVD compilation of stories told in many languages and through shadow puppetry. This series will be based on a collection of folk tales which Sean Powers has gathered over many years.
