Cinema Night Special: Discover Fresh Takes on Storytelling Through Animation, Plus Live Music
Friday, May 3 | 6:30-8:30 PM | Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room | Adults
This coming Friday, Cinema Night Special will present two vastly contrasting examples of storytelling through animation. The evening kicks off with a fanciful Oscar-winning short, The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore -- created in a "hybrid style of animation that harkens back to silent films and M-G-M Technicolor musicals."
The 80-minute, critically accritically-acclaimed Czech film "Alois Nebel," (Best Animated Film, 2012 European Film Awards) draws from vastly different inspiration —classic film noir. Rendered in mesmerizing black-and-white rotoscope, this darker film traces the haunted memories and mysterious visions of a troubled Czechoslovakian train dispatcher, haunted by events in the Second World War.
Between films, local band Cash Harrison & The Terrible Decisions will perform a live set, and fresh popcorn will be served.
Enjoy this special evening of film and music!
