(directed by Adam Elliot / 2003 / Australia / 23 min)
Harvek Milos Krumpetzki was born in Poland in 1922. After World War II had broken out, he left for Australia and changed his name to Harvie Krumpet. Harvie has had some bad luck, there is no doubt about it: he suffers from Tourett's syndrome, he was struck by a lightning and lost a testicle. Still he remains an optimist, marries a nurse and brings up an adopted daughter. Against all the odds and his childlike naïvete, he enjoys his life to the fullest. In 2003, Harvie Krumpet was awarded the Academy Award for the best short animated film.
