Bill Plympton to Release Satirical ‘Hitler’s Folly’ Free on Internet

12 May 2016 7:14 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Indie animation legend Bill Plympton will release his next feature film, mockumentary “Hitler’s Folly,” for free on the Internet next month.

The 67-minute movie, billed as a “merciless satire” in which Adolf Hitler is reimagined as a successful animator and artist, will be available free to stream at on Friday, June 3, “as special thank-you to his loyal fans,” his company said. It also will be available on YouTube and Vimeo.

“Hitler’s Folly” stars Nate Steinwachs (“Goddess of Time”) as Hitler and Dana Ashbrook (“Twin Peaks”) as Josh. It is directed, designed, animated and written by Plympton.

Using Hitler’s early artwork, World War II footage and Plympton’s signature animation, the film explores the dictator’s unfulfilled animation career in the spirit of Mel Brooks’ “The Producers,” Walt Disney’s “Der Fuhrer’s Face” and Tex Avery’s “Blitz Wolf,” Plymptoons said.
