A Bear Named Jesus

Canada 2023
No screenings. Part of previous festival's programme.

Nordic premiere

A bear named Jesus abducts the narrator’s mother, who is converted to Christianity. The surreal stop-motion animation is a poignantly humorous portrayal of estrangement and grief at the loss of someone still living.
