Torrey Pines is both a new stop-motion animated feature film by director Clyde Petersen, and a touring theatrical show!

Based on a true story, the film is a queer punk coming-of-age tale, taking place in Southern California in the early 1990's. The film has a soundtrack produced by Chris Walla, while the live theatrical version has a score performed by the band Your Heart Breaks.

TAIS is also excited to announce that the final films from TAIS/The 519's Animazing! Animation Movie Camp will open the evening! If you missed the premiere of these films on September 18th at The 519, don't miss this chance to celebrate fantastic short animated films by Amna Alam, Elijah Williams, Adrian Mo, Kevin O’Brien, Dinaly Tran, Sammy Winter-Specter, and Plum Holtz-Carriere.
