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 60 min. 

After World War II, animation artists in Soviet-bloc countries found ingenious and powerful ways of expressing the anxiety and fear that constituted day-to-day existence under repressive regimes. Walerian Borowczyk, Jiri Trnka, Jan Svankmajer and others distilled their feelings into dark, visual metaphors that conveyed their message to the rest of the world. Program curated By Steve Stanchfield, Professor of Animation, Entertainment Arts, College for Creative Studies.

Note that the Sunday, December 8, 2 p.m. screening takes place in the Lecture Hall.
