It has been an especially good year for animated documentaries both here and internationally.
This program showcases films that artfully and imaginatively employ the fascinating properties of animation to explore subjects as diverse as the unlikely sexual allure of serial killers, what life was like as a child chimney sweep and how Jimmy Page scored his legendary ’59 Telecaster. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring filmmakers, documentarians and animators exploring the unique creative possibilities that using animation can bring to the documentary space.
