Don Hertzfeldt’s Feature Screening in NYC Through Thursday

Don Hertzfeldt‘s first animated feature It’s Such a Beautiful Day is screening through this Thursday, October 11th, at both the Bijou in Eugene, Oregon and the IFC Center in Manhattan. The 70-minute film is a recut version of the shorts trilogy that Hertzfeldt has created over the past decade—Everything Will Be OK (2006), I Am So Proud of You (2008) and It’s Such a Beautiful Day (2012). Despite the post we published few weeks ago, Hertzfeldt tells me that he did not qualify the film for Oscar consideration, which is a shame because it would have been among the more distinguished animated features in contention.

The feature-length It’s Such a Beautiful Day will continue to tour around the U.S. through the holidays. The screening schedule can be found on

    Having seen parts one and two of Don’s trilogy I must say that these are profound little work of film-making.
    Despite the simplicity of his style, he manages to drag you across the room by your emotional earlobes.
    They left me with goosebumps and needless to say, I can’t wait to see part three, or the feature, whichever makes it to a screen near me first.
    Pity about the Oscars, but here’s hoping the man has many films in him yet.

    Massive respect.

    I’m amazed there aren’t more comments on here. Don’s drawings may seem “primitive” but his work is actually very impressive taken as a total work of animation. Very funny, very creative, I can’t wait to see this film!
