Shaun Tan's film, narrated by Tim Minchin, weaves a tale of friendship in a dystopian society

Telling the story of a young boy who befriends a strange creature that doesn’t seem to fit into any of society's little boxes, 'The Lost Thing' is an Oscar-winning animation based upon Shaun Tan’s book of the same title. Tan directed the film, made by Melbourne-based production company Passion Pictures, with narration by Tim Minchin. Accompanying daily screenings of 'The Lost Thing' at ACMI is an exhibition featuring original sketches and drawings as well as exclusive footage of animators and sound artists at work during production.
