Recurring Event Event Series: 22nd Animation Show of Shows

22nd Animation Show of Shows

November 25 @ 6:30 pm



22ndPoster_20220911_CroppedNov 24-27 – After a two-year Covid hiatus, the ANIMATION SHOW OF SHOWS returns to theaters and
campuses across North America this fall. This 22nd edition comprises 10 films — nine recent,
along with one restored classic — which deal with both the anxieties and hopes of a world faced
with a seemingly endless series of existential crises. All are inventive, their tone ranges from the
whimsical to the profound; their techniques, from stop-motion to hand-drawn to computer-aided.
“While the recent films were conceived and some finished, before the Covid lockdowns, all but the most abstract display a concern with the ways in which we are all interconnected…or sadly alienated from our sense of
human connection,” says founder and curator Ron Diamond.

This year’s films are:
Beyond Noh — Patrick Smith/Kaori Ishida (U.S./Japan)
Empty Places — Geoffroy de Crecy (France)
Beseder (Good and Better) — Gil Alkabetz (Germany)
Zoizoglyphe — Jeanne Apergis (France)
Rain (Deszcz) — Piotr Milczarek (Poland)
Average Happiness — Maja Gehrig (Switzerland)
Aurora — Jo Meuris (U.S.)
Yes-People — Gísli Darri Halldórsson (Iceland)
Ties — Dina Velikovskaya (Germany/Russia)
The Man Who Planted Trees — Frederic Back (Canada)
