Chris Landreth’s award-winning National Film Board of Canada (NFB) animated short uses a common social gaffe – forgetting somebody’s name – as the starting point for a mind-bending romp through the unconscious. Inspired by the classic TV game show Password, the film features a wealth of animated celebrity guests who try (and try, and try) to prompt Charles to remember the name. Finally, he realizes he will simply have to surrender himself to his predicament.
