Odds and Sods: Steven Subotnick Retrospective
Odds and Sods: Steven Subotnick Retrospective

Rich, diverse, lively and mysterious, the widely praised award-winning short films (e.g. Pig, Strange Fish, Fight and Hairy Man) of American experimental animator, Steven Subotnick, are like improvised poems or compact meditations of an assortment of themes and ideas. Using an arsenal of materials (drawings, cutouts, fruit), imagery (abstract and figurative) and sounds, Subotnick explores aspects of history and folklore, often unearthing the oddities (Lake), cruelties (Fight, Pig, Hairyman), and anxieties (Ballerina) of nature and humanity. All with a calm, playful and freewheeling tone that skitters, skulks and slinks between the misty boundaries of comedy and tragedy. (Chris Robinson)

Subotnik, a member of the OIAF 18 jury, will be in attendance through the festival.
