The Ghostly Frozen Chicken of Highgate Hill

Official Selection, New York International Open Film Festival. A spooky Christmas ghost story. Told in verse, this animated short film is a festive true story featuring the troubled spirit of a half-plucked hen, which locals say still haunts Pond Square in Highgate to this very day.

Brian Luff writes: My good friend Alan Benns and I dreamt up this short film when the barman at the Prince of Wales pub in Pond Square told us about the ghostly chicken of Highgate Hill. This was my first animated film and I have recently remastered it and released it for Christmas 2022.
