Harvie Krumpet is the biography of an ordinary man seemingly cursed with bad luck. From being born with Tourette Syndrome to getting struck by lightning; from having his testicle removed to developing Alzheimer’s disease; Harvie’s troubles seem unending ! Yet, Harvie learns many lessons about life and enjoys its many fruits. He finds love, freedom, nudity and ultimately the true meaning of what it is to be human.

Julie Forsyth (BABE) and John Flaus (THE DISH),
and was written, directed and animated by Adam Elliot, produced by Melanie Coombs, edited by Bill Murphy and sound by Peter Walker and the team at Soundwaves.
