Jessica Yu’s Kinda Sutra

One of my favorite offerings from this summer’s 36th Annual Telluride Film Festival. Directed by Academy Award winner Jessica Yu, Kinda Sutra charmingly relates early impressions of the eternal question: where do babies come from? A big crowd pleaser that played before Lone Scherfig’s brutally overrated An Education (just one man’s lonely counterpoint in a see of praise). Yu’s use of vibrant animations to illustrate the awkward tales of the misguided youths of a variety of adults is highly entertaining and certainly a welcome and refreshing take on the presentation of documentary content. The version screened at Telluride was about 8 minutes long, but the above abridged version is the only one currently available online (or at least the only one I could find).
