Magic Lantern Presents “The Invisible Hand Animation Extravaganza”
Wednesday the 29th of November at 9:30pm
at the Cable Car Cinema (204 South Main Street, Providence, RI)
ARTISTS EDIE FAKE, HEATHER HARKINS, ROBY NEWTON, ERIN ROSENTHAL AND
NEAL WALSH IN PERSON!
In a follow-up to last year's sell-out show, Magic Lantern' Jo Dery
presents another evening of stellar animation – the Invisible Hand
Animation Extravaganza! The “invisible hands” of our featured artists
are behind the creation of six NEW experimental animations which will
be premiered tonight and, because this program is also a 30th
anniversary celebration of Cecile Starr and Robert Russett's
super-important book “Experimental Animation,” each filmmaker has
chosen a film profiled in “Experimental Animation” to be screened
alongside their own work! As if all this weren't enough, Cecile Starr
herself (who is now 85 years young and lives in Vermont) will be
loaning us prints from her private collection, and we'll be screening a
special favorite film of her own choosing. So come on down to see the
new experiments cooked up by Erin Rosenthal (Providence), Neal Walsh
(Providence), Roger Mayer (Providence), Roby Newton (Baltimore), Edie
Fake (Los Angeles), and Heather Harkins (Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada)
- as well as these older animations that are a rare, rare, rare treat.
