It’s the second year at Tides High for best friends and school-paper colleagues Dash and Assaf, and they’re optimistic that things will be different. But once inside the four walls of the precariously located school (it’s perched right next to the sea), things soon go downhill.

My Entire High School Sinking Into the SeaDirected byDash Shaw
A dazzling psychedelic kaleidoscope of layers and media. Some parts of the film are very funny, and sure, some parts are even absurd - but I don't think the filmmakers are taking themselves too seriously. G-Kids' productions feel infinitely more imaginative than your standard animated flick.
Haven't decided if this is a 2.5 (interesting failure) or a 3 (could've been great). The animation technique & the score bothered me in the begining but halfway through it I was sold. The art is spectacular (in a psychedelic Charlie Brown kind of way) but what really let me down were the main characters (except Lorraine). When you do a Rushmore Disaster Film on Acid, you better bring your A game to the Rushmore part
At his first film, Dash Shaw creates a colourful, funny and often crazy movie - combining a disaster film with a high school comedy. The result is a dazzling journey into the lives of a bunch of teenagers, who are aiming to survive after a earthquake has upset their school, affecting their own relationships. Shaw examines adolescence in a very peculiar and innovative way (and J. Schwartzman's voice is hilarious!).
