sl_athensanimation.jpg
Cartoons can be serious. Filmmakers Lisa Thomas and Margo Pelletier prove it by showcasing animations that contain political, social, and personal themes in the debut Athens Animation Festival. Thirty short films from eight different countries will be screened including The Candy Tree by Somnath Pal from Bombay, which follows a child who tries to grow a tree out of his last piece of candy, and Mimmers by Nafisah Mohamed from the Republic of Singapore, a 3-D animation that uses miming to depict family values. Local filmmakers will present original work including New Project by Sam Sebren from Athens, an experimental animation using only preset images, sounds, and text from Mac programs iMovie and iLife, and Say Can You See by Tony Caio from Hudson, which tells the story of a person who witnesses 9/11 from atop the Empire State Building. The screenings and after party will be held at Crossroads Brewery and Pub, a former opera house that features a variety of craft beers including Outrage IPA, Black Rock Stout, and Brady’s Bay Cream Ale. September 15; 5pm-8:30pm; free to the public.
