The impact of the decline of heavy industry on workers and their families in the Tiexi district of Shenyang, China, at the turn of the 21st century, documented unflinchingly by a fly-on-the-wall camera.
I was lucky enough to have attended the magical school of UCSB about a week ago when Don Hertzfeldt, an alumni, premiered "I Am So Proud of You" to anyone willing to fork over five dollars. It was an experience I will never forget. All i had previously seen of his work were the shorts "Rejected" and "Billy's Balloon," so I thought I knew what to expect. "I am So Proud of You" is a phenomenal piece of storytelling, animation, and bittersweet humor. I won't say anything in regards to the storyline except that it begins by tracing Bill's family history, which is disturbingly hilarious. This film is very similar to "Everything Will be OK" in form, style, structure, and the overall theme of impending death. This is a fantastic film that should not be missed by anyone who has access to it and calls themselves a fan of anything that can be viewed in a movie theater.
