Pixie & Dust is a quirky adventure filled 30-minute film written and directed by Cynthia Pepper. We follow two teenagers through five colorful zones as they look for a mysterious treasure. The two friends guided by Dust’s Aunt Joan combat a T-Rex dinosaur, a whale, horses, color poems, garbage cans and each other.
I loved the magical animation, imaginative rush and swirl of color in Cynthia Pepper’s new film Pixie & Dust. There were many enchanting moments for me which were filled with wonderful, occasionally hilarious, creative imagery that all flowed from her brain.

Pixie & Dust draws the audience into the fantastic imaginings of a child’s inner self. With bold mixed media and leaping poetry, Cynthia Pepper exposes herself as an artist more than a traditional filmmaker. She has crafted a piece as quirky and absurd as it is adorable. Kudos for her creative audacity. She has dared to infuse her avant-garde sensibilities into the youth genre short film without compromising its charm.
