In the 1960’s, riding a wave of successful commercial and theatrical work, the Canadian animator Richard Williams opened his own, independent animation studio in London. After falling in love with a series of classic Persian stories, Williams set out to make an animated feature from these tales called THE THIEF AND THE COBBLER. With each frame painstakingly hand drawn in incredible detail by an army of animators, Williams’ dream to complete the film would become a personal odyssey spanning three decades, decades which not only cost the studio tremendous amounts of money, but which saw a revolution in animation.
