An annual event for our group, I've always loved the chance to see animation features from around the world. This year is no exception.
A quick summary:
• "Feral" (USA), a wild boy, found in the woods and brought back to civilization, tries to adapt to a new environment
• "Get a Horse!" (USA), an homage to the first shorts featuring Mickey Mouse, with all-new, black-and-white, hand-drawn animation
• "Mr. Hublot" (Luxembourg/France), about a withdrawn, idiosyncratic character made partially of mechanical parts whose life is turned upside down by the arrival of the dog Robot Pet
• "Possessions" (Japan), in which an 18th Century man, lost on a stormy night deep in the mountains, enters a small shrine that suddenly turns into a room in a different world
• "Room on the Broom" (UK), based on the children's picture book by Julia Donaldson, about a kind witch who invites a surprising collection of animals to join her on her broom, much to the frustration of her cat.
Since this is an early afternoon meetup and lighter fare, I'm not doing a dinner discussion afterward. Rather, those who are interested can join me after at Sweet Action Ice Cream - 52 S. Broadway for a treat and a quick review.
There is no group charge for this meetup, but you have to buy your own ticket and ice cream.
See you there.
