Ryan is Chris Landreth’s dark, haunting, and wildly imaginative short film about his old friend, animator Ryan Larkin. Landreth calls his style “psychorealism”- essentially, he puts his characters’ psyches right into the construction of their bodies, so their personalities exist in plain sight. It’s surreal, creepy, beautiful, and confusing.
