In Collaboration with AWN (Animation World Network ) & ASIFA

OH, THE ANIMATION!

With the Oscars bringing attention to animated short films, we bring you a wide range of animated shorts that are funny, sad, beautiful and awe-inspiring. And in the spirit of Film Noir month, we have several shorts that will intrigue fans of the genre. Several of the filmmakers will appear for an in-person discussion.

Alessandro Ceglia’s “Intruder” ( USA , 3 min). The eerie tale of one woman’s paranoia. Justine Kerrigan’s “The Girl Who Swallowed Bees” ( Australia , 3 min). Beautiful, magical, darkly humorous short about a girl who finds herself at the end of her rope. Joe Tucker’s “For the Love of God” ( UK , 11 min). Christian and his mother both love God in very different ways! Trev Jimenez’s “Key Lime Pie” ( Canada , 3 min). In this spin on the noir genre, a man’s obsession with key lime pie brings him to the brink of insanity. Michael Robinson’s “Joshua His Tree” ( USA , 6 min). A depiction of Joshua Tree National Park as it evolves over millions of years. Juan Pablo Zaramella’s “Lapsus” ( Argentina , 4 min). A curious nun ventures into the darker side of her animated world. Rune Christensen’s “Down the Road” ( Denmark , 15 min). A dark thriller that pits a preacher against a hitchhiker. J. Zachary Pike’s “The Toll” ( USA , 8 min). A mockumentary about the work of a troll. Luis Cook’s “The Pearce Sisters” ( UK , 10 min). From Aardman Animation (“Wallace and Gromit”), this BAFTA Award winner concerns two sisters and their competition over a man. Bob Ray’s “Apeshit Wa-Hoo” ( USA , 5 min). Exciting tale of a foul-mouthed monkeynaut and the hillbilly clerk who go on a wild chase. Bill Plympton’s “Shut-Eye Hotel” ( USA , 7 min). From the award-winning director of “Guard Dog” comes the tale of gruesome murders that lead to an unusual stakeout. Zeth Willie’s “The Needful Head” ( USA , 5 min). Absurd, funny tale about…well…the needful head!

Discussion to follow with filmmakers Alessandro Ceglia (“Intruder”), Bob Ray (“Apeshit Wa-Hoo”) and Michael Robinson (“Joshua His Tree”). Program compiled by Andrew P. Crane
