Outstanding Animated Visions

Tuesday, October 22, 2013, 5:00 pm
Celebrating International Animation Day, this program includes both unique well-known and obscure films and show that a wide variety of different materials and techniques can be used to achieve success. It also acknowledges that great animation comes from many parts of the globe. None of the films have a traditional story structure. Instead, each uses original artistic and narrative approaches to deliver content. The program touches on several once forbidden topics including sex and politics. While half of the films are light and at times humorous, there are also surreal experimental films and two gripping personal works that deal with their content in unusual ways. Hosts: Karl Cohen and Martha Gorzycki. Co-sponsored by ASIFA (Association Internationale du Film d'Animation / International Animated Film Association), San Francisco chapter. Free.
