Torrey Pines: A Stop-Motion Animated Adventure with Live Score
By Director Clyde Petersen

World premier tour of Torrey Pines, a stop-motion animated feature film by director Clyde Petersen with a live score by a three-piece band. 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. Raised by a schizophrenic single mother, Petersen’s life story unfolds in a series of baffling and hallucinated events. With a mother fueled by hallucinations of political conspiracy and family dysfunction, Petersen is kidnapped at the age of 12 and taken on a cross-country adventure that will forever alter the family as they know it.
