The Animatrix – Kid’s Story

The other day I was re-watching “Kid’s Story” off The Animatrix DVD. Of all the various Matrices (plural?) that’s the one story that gets me every time – in just over 9 minutes it seems to capture many themes that might make it a useful analogy in a religious context. Does the kid have a “conversion” moment or is it a journey? What role does faith serve in appropriating grace? The sense of hope that it leaves rather than (for me) the sense of despair and futility at the end of the third movie. As well as the “putting to death” of the old self for the new.

If you haven’t seen it hire the DVD and watch just that one story. The animation style is great too.

Maybe Stu could do something with it?
