Audience Award Winner at Fantastic Fest 2009 and the first stop-motion animated feature selected to Cannes, "A Town Called Panic" follows the wacky, hilarious and often surreal adventures of three plastic toys named Cowboy, Indian and Horse who share a rambling house in a rural town which never fails to attract the weirdest events.

Each speedy character is voiced--and animated--as if they are filled with laughing gas. With hysteria a permanent feature of life in this papier-mâché burg, will Horse and his equine paramour-flame-tressed music teacher Madame Longray (Jeanne Balibar)-ever find a quiet moment alone? A sort of Gallic Monty Python crossed with Art Clokey on acid, "A Town Called Panic" is zany, brainy and altogether insane-y!
