Starlight Cinema celebrates animation with a diverse slate of modern short films including the lauded "World of Tomorrow" by Don Hertzfeldt, as well as more left-field experimental selections.

USA, Japan, Canada, | 50 min | Digital Projection | Various Directors

Starlight Cinema presents a program of modern animation! These shorts run the gamut from truly avant-garde experiments with form ("Alone with the Moon" by Peter Burr and "Nebula" by Suzie Silver and Hilary Harp) to more traditional, narrative-focused pieces ("Love-Hate Relationship" by Sarina Nihei and "A Boy on a Dock Blowing his Nose" by Barry Doupe), and feature a variety of animation styles including digital, watercolor, and cut-out stop-motion. This program should serve as a reminder of animation's ability to unite the fantastic and the mundane, the realist and absurd into perfect harmony.

The full program is as follows:
A BOY ON A DOCK BLOWING HIS NOSE by Barry Doupe
NEBULA by Suzie Silver and Hilary Harp
THE DANCE OF INDEPENDENT HEADS by Sarina Nihei
LOVE-HATE RELATIONSHIP by Sarina Nihei
MEGILLAT BREAKDOWN by Leslie Baum and Frederick Wells
ALONE WITH THE MOON by Peter Burr
