The Arrival of Sir Gerald (2020)
It’s been said that artists should create the art they want to see in the world. Well, I wanted to watch an animated short about Sir Gerald’s arrival, and I looked around, and somehow nobody had made one before. There have been literally hundreds of beloved films about Sir Gerald’s departure, and a commanding 70% of Best Picture Oscar winners have been about Sir Gerald just staying put, but no filmmaker has had the fortitude to tell the story of Sir Gerald’s arrival until now. No, I don’t think “hero” is too strong a word.
