Alina, eager for a promotion at work, agrees to take on what appears to be a straightforward task: Housesitting and taking care of her boss Sybil’s precious dog, Winston. But confusion sets in when Alina arrives at the home only to discover that ”Winston” is in fact a stuffed animal — leading her to question both her boss’s motives and her mental state.
After an extraordinarily successful slate of films for 2015, Tohubohu returned to the 48 Hour Film Project in 2016 with “Winston,” a lighthearted animal film, for which “Tex: Wisdom of the Old West” co-screenwriter Anna Coughlan took on solo scripting duties (as well as co-producing). The film was produced over the weekend of April 29th through May 1st, 2016, and premiered at the AFI Silver Theatre on Saturday, May 7th.
