entitled "Essential Viewing" featuring all the films
that any animation fan must see.
"A subjective suggestion for a basic library of short animated films that, in my opinion, should be essential viewing for students. The 18 shorts offer a broad overview of the medium's various masterworks, masters and techniques, from viewpoints historical, technological and aesthetic. They are also films that never cease to amaze, amuse and/or intrigue me.” John Canemaker

Laguionie Retrospective Saturday, Oct. 18, 8 p.m.
sponsored by the Embassy of France
In 1963, Jean-François Laguionie, a French movie actor, discovered animation when introduced to legendary French animator, Paul Grimault, who loaned the young Laguionie his animation equipment. Since 1965, he has produced some of the most exquisitely rendered animation in all of Europe. Laguionie’s animation examines familiar myths and uses fairy tale narratives to explore the differences between reality and illusion. Critically acclaimed and award winning, his work has been described as a kinetic combination of “naïf painting and René Magritte.”
