MUBI, the global distributor and curated film streaming service, is pleased to release the UK trailer and poster for Dash Shaw’s vibrant and distinctive animated feature Cryptozoo, which will be released exclusively on MUBI in the UK and Ireland on 22 October 2021.
A highlight of the 2021 Sundance Film Festival, as well as the 2021 Berlinale Generation where it earned the Special Mention in the 14plus competition, Cryptozoo is a dazzling fantasy from the mind of visionary filmmaker Dash Shaw (High School Sinking into the Sea). Featuring an animation style that recalls René Laloux's Fantastic Planet, the film is a mesmerising experience you'll never forget.
Set in a world inhabited by both humans and rare mythical creatures known as "Cryptids", it tells the story of Lauren, a zookeeper who has dedicated her life to finding and bringing these controversial beings under the protection of her sanctuary - the titular Cryptozoo. When she attempts to track down an elusive, dream-eating beast and bring it to safety, she enters into a dangerous mission to find it before it is captured and exploited by the military.
