The Last Red Riding Hood (Le dernier chaperon rouge)

Director: Jan Kounen

Institute History

  • 1997 Sundance Film Festival


A psychotic sci-fi, sugar-pop ballet, Jan Kounen’s The Last Red Riding Hood works a wicked spin on two of the darker parables of our youth: “Little Red Riding Hood” and Alice in Wonderland. Abounding with wit and visual invention, this audacious short about a lonely monster saved by the arrival of an atomic rocket is stunningly original and more than a trifle demented.
