Made using hand-crafted stop-motion collage animation, “Toys” tells the autobiographical father-daughter story of actress Peggy Pope. In 1930s farm country, Peggy’s father wanted a son, but he got her. He tries to toughen up his little girl by giving her toys intended for boys: knives, bats, lariats, guns. One day, he brings home an archery set. To his astonishment, she proves a savant and goes on a shooting spree around the yard, coming into her own and making him fear for his life. The film is narrated by Pope, now 86, looking back on this momentous encounter with her dad.
