Indie animators get their due at Pacific Film Archive

Wednesday, August 24, 2011

imageSomething special for animation lovers this week: Guest curator Karl Cohen has put together a two-part program of short works exclusively from Bay
Area independent animators tonight and Sunday night at Berkeley’s Pacific Film Archive. (Leave the kiddies at home.) A sample: Sally Cruikshank’s “Quasi at the Quakadero" (1975), screening tonight. Sarah Hotchkiss at KQED’s Arts blog describes it as “the trippy and bizarre story of a duck’s visit to an amusement park with his simpering girlfriend Anita and a pet robot.”

Add: The still is from “Los ABCs,” John Jota Leanos’s 2005 primer on global injustice—conducted by a mariachi band. It screens Sunday.
