Tulip on the Big Screen
My Dog Tulip world theatrical premiere, Sept. 1

The animated film version of J.R. Ackerley’s best-selling memoir, My Dog Tulip, will have its world theatrical premiere on Wednesday, Sept. 1, at the New York Film Forum. Written, directed and animated by Paul and Sandra Fierlinger, this decidedly adult story traces the small details of the 14-year relationship between Ackerley (voiced by Christopher Plummer) and his Alsatian in post-war England. We’re big fans of the classic, unsentimental memoir, which was first published in England in 1956, and now the lively, thoughtful film. Check out our Q&A with the Fierlingers in Bark (Summer 2010).

 

The filmmakers will attend the 8 p.m. shows on Sept. 1 and 2. My Dog Tulip runs through Sept. 14 (screening details here).
