Torill Kove just won the Best Animated Short Film Oscar for her film The Danish Poet.
Animated Views has a nice interview with her. She seems so very down to earth and matter of fact about her animation and her outlook on it. I really admire her point of view. I very much liked her previously nominated film, My Grandmother Ironed the King’s Shirts, too. Her work has a very unassuming style- she’s just confident in who she is as a filmmaker and what her films are. There seems to be no hint of trying to impress anybody or silence any critics, just pure storytelling and charm. Congrats to Torill for her success and her wonderful films.
