Toronto Outdoor Picture Show presents Ratatouille at Bell Manor Park!

  • pin Bell Manor Park (Banana Park) Bayside Lane Toronto, ON, M8Y Canada (map)

Toronto Outdoor Picture Show heads to Etobicoke on Thursday evenings in August for the fourth and final chapter of its summer-long “Dynamic Duos” programme at parks across the city!

This evening’s programme of animated stories about food and family centres on RATATOUILLE, the charming tale of a talking rat and an inept young chef who team up to make a name for themselves in Paris by mastering the art of French cuisine. The film is fun for all ages, offering both slapstick hijinks and a sophisticated consideration of artistic creativity, collaboration, and criticism.

RATATOUILLE’s meticulous depictions of food preparation and eating helped inspire the more recent Pixar short, BAO, Chinese-Canadian animator Domee Shi’s recent Oscar-winning fable of a lonely, aging mother in Toronto’s Chinatown who manifests herself a son out of a pork bun. Fellow Torontonian animator Melody Wang’s THE CASEBOOK OF NIPS & PORKINGTON rounds out the evening, following a dynamic duo of cat and pig detectives as they attempt to retrieve a stolen egg in a world artfully rendered in old-timey newsprint.
