Love giant robots? Lush Carribean backdrops? Afrofuturism? Animated fare that pulls at the heartstrings like The Iron Giant? Check out The Mighty Grand Piton.
Created by Wesley Louis, the short was animated by London based animation studio, The Line Animation. From the website, “The Mighty Grand Piton is a short film about a young British girl, Connie, who travels to the Caribbean Island of Saint Lucia for her school holidays with her family. There, she accidentally awakens a giant robot buried under the Twin Piton mountains on the south of the Island. This robot seems compelled to protect Saint Lucia but his origins are mysterious. No one knows where he came from or how long he’s been there. During the many years he’s lain dormant, The Mighty Grand Piton, became nothing more than the stuff of legend.”
