I thought "Trip to the Planetarium Reloaded" was among the better things I've seen at the Festival this year. It showed how difficult life can be for the aged and/or handicapped in lighthearted way without disrespecting your elders. The animation was excellent. Good story line. Nice execution. In "short", a very fine short film.
