Montreal filmmakers team up with Spike Jonze and NFB for new Sendak short

Chris Lavis and Maciek Szczerbowski, the Montreal based Oscar-nominated filmmaking duo also known as Clyde Henry, who are responsible for Madame Tutli-Putli, have teamed up with the National Film Board of Canada and Spike Jonze to adapt Maurice Sendak’s book Higglety Pigglety Pop! or There Must Be More to Life into a new live-action/animated short film.

The short will feature the voices of Meryl Streep and Forest Whitaker and will be packaged with the Blu-Ray release of Jonze’s feature film Where The Wild Things Are, which is scheduled to be released on March 2.

Here’s a summary of the story, via NFB: “Higglety Pigglety Pop! or There Must Be More to Life tells the story of Jennie, who once had everything. She had two bowls to eat from, two pillows, and for cold weather a red wool sweater. She even had a master who loved her. But Jennie didn’t care. In the middle of the night she packed everything she had in a black leather bag with gold buckles and looked out of her favourite window for the last time. Higglety Pigglety Pop! or There Must Be More to Life follows Jennie’s surreal, suspenseful and unexpectedly moving journey to gain new experiences and realize her dream of becoming the star of the World Mother Goose Theatre.”

Higglety Pigglety Pop! or There Must Be More to Life will debut on February 28 at the Festival International du Film pour Enfants de Montréal (Montreal Children’s International Film Festival). It is also planned to be released by the National Film Board of Canada this summer.
