A merciless satire from Academy Award nominee Bill Plympton, HITLER’S FOLLY explores what might have happened if Adolf Hitler’s art career had been more successful and instead of becoming an evil dictator, he was inspired to become an animator like Walt Disney.
Using World War II footage, Hitler’s early artwork and Plympton’s signature animation, this dark mockumentary re-imagines history and explores Hitler’s unfulfilled animation career in the spirit of “The Producers” by Mel Brooks, “Der Fuhrer’s Face” by Walt Disney and “Blitz Wolf” by Tex Avery.
The film stars Dana Ashbrook (Twin Peaks) as Josh, Nate Steinwachs as Hitler and Michael Sullivan – star of Greaser’s Palace (1972) by Robert Downey.
HITLER’S FOLLY is directed, designed, animated, and written by Academy Award Nominee Bill Plympton.
