My Dog Tulip

The film My Dog Tulip, adapted from J.R. Ackerley’s memoir, tells the story of a lonely man and his relationship with his rescued dog. The bond between the pair is one of growing devotion, as the two develop a love and understanding for each other. Directed and animated by Paul and Sandra Fier-linger, My Dog Tulip consists of roughly 60,000 drawings and took the couple three years to finish. (Here’s some trivia: It’s the first animated feature ever completely drawn using paperless computer technology.) Christopher Plummer, who also voiced Disney-Pixar’s Up, narrates the deeply moving and insightful story. 7 p.m. February 13 and 14; 5 p.m. February 20. Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, 1001 Bissonnet.
