Animating the City at Riverside Studios London

Thursday 22 June 2006 21:00

animate! presents a dynamic, diverting, sometimes disturbing but always hugely imaginative exploration of urban lives and locales. Nine wide-ranging films in this programme, selected from the ever-expanding catalogue of animate! commissions, reveal fresh perspectives of the city:

13 by Simon Faithfull, Black, White & Green by Ian Bourn, Dad’s Dead by Chris Shepherd, Ferment by Ian Macmillan, Flight by Dryden Goodwin, The Nuclear Train by Daniel Saul, Soho Square by Mario Cavalli, Stressed by Karen Kelly and What She Wants by Ruth Lingford.

Animating the City is preceded at 18:30 in this Riverside animation double bill by Jan Svankmajer’s feature Little Otick. A darkly witty and unsettling fable of sinister woodland incursions into the city from the master Czech Surrealist. Mixing animation and live-action, this is a uniquely outrageous vision.
