#screensparks: dash shaw’s debut animated feature to be released next spring

Dash Shaw’s highly anticipated debut feature My High School is Sinking into the Sea will be released next year by GKids films.

The ground breaking animated film wowed festival audiences this year, screening at the Toronto International Film Festival and earning lucrative nominations at AFI Fest and the Philadelphia International Film Festival.

With a star-filled voice over cast such as Jason Schwartzman, Reggie Watts, Maya Rudolph, Lena Dunham and Susan Sarandon as the lunch lady, the story follows Dash as he struggles to keep himself afloat, literally and figuratively, after his entire high school breaks off and drifts into the middle of the sea following an earthquake.
