cartOOn schOOl at 33 Hawley

WHAT: cartOOn schOOl :: episode 1: strange transformations
WHEN: Jun 8, 2018 at 8:00 PM to 9:30 PM
WHERE: 33 Hawley St. Northampton, MA.

Big-screen animation roars back to Northampton on Friday, June 8 when Northampton Media (formerly Northampton Community Television) proudly presents cartOOn schOOl. The first in this series of screenings is Episode 1: Strange Transformations.

Animator and lecturer Luke Jaeger will screen a curated show of classic cartoons as well as contemporary and rare, hard-to-find short films, from two to eight minutes long. The show will feature everything from WWII propaganda to personal films by artists from Russia, Colombia, Canada, the Netherlands, and the US. Jaeger promises “90 minutes of cinematic shenanigans. These films transform the familiar into the uncanny: housepets into monsters, bathtubs into battle zones, and reality itself into mind-bending surrealism.“ There will be weaponized cuckoo clocks, booty-shaking ancient goddesses, a steak the size of Los Angeles, a certain rabbit singing opera, and an opportunity for Q and A. Admission is free; all are welcome.
