AVANT-GARDE ANIMATION

Sunday, October 13, 2013

2:00 PM DFT Auditorium

Enhance your visit to Watch Me Move: The Animation Show by attending an animation compilation in the historic Detroit Film Theatre. All exhibition visitors receive one free ticket for the films listed below; additional tickets are $5.00 each. Total running time for each film is approximately 80 min. 

Since the earliest days of animation, experimentation with the abstract, non-narrative possibilities of the movie screen as a channel for expression has appealed to such artists as Oskar Fischinger, Fernand Leger and Lotte Reiniger. Dispensing with traditional storylines, these works stimulate the viewer with the power of suggestion and the pure joy of motion. Program curated By Steve Stanchfield, Professor of Animation, Entertainment Arts, College for Creative Studies.

Note that the Thursday, December 5, 2 p.m. screening will take place in the Lecture Hall.
