Purl is an animated short film from Pixar’s SparkShorts program. It is directed by Kristen Lester and is based on her experience of being in animation.
My first job… I was like… the only woman in the room. And so… in order to do the thing that I loved, I sort of became one of the guys.

Purl features an earnest ball of yarn named Purl who gets a job in a fast-paced, high energy, bro-tastic start-up. Yarny hijinks ensue as she tries to fit in, but how far is she willing to go to get the acceptance she yearns for, and in the end, is it worth it?
