Bill Plympton Goes Noir with CHEATIN’ at SF IndieFest

Animation Magazine has a nice write up of their conversation with Bill Plympton where he talks about how his latest feature (in this year’s festival, GET TICKETS HERE!) aims to diversify the animated film coming from Hollywood these days. 

“It’s my dream that people will see this as part of a genre that hasn’t been successful since Ralph Bakshi,” says Plympton, referring to Bakshi’s 1972 X-rated hit Fritz the Cat. “There have been a few European films, like The Triplets of Belleville, but I think there’s a need for an American film that addresses this huge vacuum. In this day of graphic novels and animated TV shows that speak to adults, why can’t we have animated adult films?”
