This program of eight short animations from CFA’s collections explores the darker side of humanity and life in the 20th century. Playing with the inherent properties of animation—transformation and metamorphosis—the dark and sinister subject matter of these films is contrasted with a playful and irreverent tone. Themes including sexuality, militarization, modernity, gender roles, social norms, and psychedelia link each of these short animations. Other spaces—spaces that resemble our lived reality—reflect alternate visions and experiences of the world. Anywhere But Here – Experimental Animation features films made in the US, Japan, Croatia, France, and Belgium from CFA’s collections—all screening on 16mm film. Tickets are available for advance purchase here & our Facebook event page is hereLillian Somersaulter-Moats and Michael Moats in person!
