A pea-sized pirate quests to slay a villainous Egg yolk in this stop-motion animated retelling of Herman Melville’s Moby Dick. “Egg” is a microscopic tale of epic tragedy.
“Egg” was Benh Zeitlin’s senior thesis film at Wesleyan. From there it went on to win a Grand Jury prize for Best Animated Short at the Slamdance Film Festival in 2005.
