Sacha gallops around Florida and gets his heart crushed by an older female. Harleigh Shaw directs “The Day that Sherrie Stopped,” a 3D animated film that’s both dreamy and somber, its surreal visual landscapes filled with color and youthful energy. After getting popsicles in the park with his friend, Sacha comes across a memorial dedicated to a woman named Judith. Sacha didn’t know her, but he’s touch by the tribute, and takes a photo of it to share on social media. By chance, Sacha’s online post reaches a woman named Sherrie who contributed some writings to the memorial. Sherrie sees this as fate, and connects with Sacha over private message, and they establish a long distance bond. Beyond the lo-fi, poppy animation style, Shaw’s film builds rich characters with complex psychological issues surrounding a host of themes, i.e. life, death, social media content, self-acceptance, et al. -KA. Director, Writer, Animator: Harleigh Shaw. Cast: Milly Cohen, Paloma Pinto, Jamila Smith, Nathan B Gomez. Producers: Harrison Fishman, Harleigh Shaw. Executive Producers: Drew Marshall, Cole Kushner.
