Striving to make the best animated film of all time, visionary animator Richard Williams (Oscar-winning animation director of Who Framed Roger Rabbit) toiled for more than three decades on his masterpiece, The Thief and the Cobbler - only to have it torn from his hands.

Filmmaker Kevin Schreck has woven together mind-blowing animation, rare archival footage, and exclusive interviews with key animators and artists who worked with Williams on his ill-fated magnum opus to bring this legendary, forgotten chapter of cinema history to the screen for the very first time.

A tale of creative genius gone horribly awry, Persistence of Vision is the untold story of the greatest animated film never made.
