Shorts 3: Animation

24 Apr
Sun, Apr 24, 2016 at 9:30 pm PT


A retirement home resident attempts to woo with music. A participant in a primal scream class gets more than he bargained for. And a child is made to drink blood from deer antlers. These imaginative, often hilarious, story-based animations mingle with non-narrative works that ply their magic with light and sophisticated processing techniques in this wide-ranging program. —Rod Armstrong
