WALLE_-_thumb.jpgWhat if mankind had to leave Earth and somebody forgot to turn the last robot off? Academy Award-winning writer-director Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo) and the inventive storytellers at Pixar Animation Studios transport moviegoers to a galaxy not so very far away for a computer-animated cosmic comedy about a determined robot named WALL-E. After hundreds of lonely years of doing what he was built for, WALL-E (short for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class) discovers a new purpose in life (besides collecting knick-knacks) when he meets a sleek search robot named EVE. EVE comes to realize that WALL-E has inadvertently stumbled upon the key to the planet's future. This wonderful animation was inspired in part by sci-fi classic Silent Running, also showing in this year's festival.
