Cadaver, the animated short film featuring fashion blogger Tavi Gevinson, may just have a chance to become an Oscar contender.
The bittersweet love story about a recently deceased man who comes back to life to say goodbye to his surviving wife has been included in the Academy’s longlist for the Best Animated Short Film category.
Written and directed by Gevinson’s pal Jonah D. Ansell, the film also features the voice talents of Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future) and Oscar winner Kathy Bates. Additionally, Gevinson lends her singing talents to the trailer with a cover of Neil Young’s “Heart of Gold.” —Portia Baladad
