‘Dream’ team toons up

'Midsummer' summer pic preems in Spain

MADRID — Spain saw a dream preem June 30 when a orange-colored, ponytailed, life-size doll with a semi-bare bottom waddled into the Capitol picture palace on Madrid’s Broadway-ish Gran Via.

The occasion: the first night of “Midsummer Dream,” the biggest Spanish toon pic of the year — a loose adaptation of Shakespeare’s comedy, from Galician animation powerhouse Dygra Films.

Accompanying the doll –Perecho, the animators’ riff on Puck — was “Midsummer” directors Manolo Gomez and Angel de la Cruz.

” ‘Midsummer’ underscores the power of dreams, even in this money-obsessed age,” Gomez said.
