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 BitterFilms.com.
