Hello folks, Rooftop Films have scheduled their annual "Dark Toons" screening, this time hosting at Open Road Rooftop in the
Lower East Side at 350 Grand Street, New York, Ny 10002.

To encourage mingling amongst the NYNJAs in attendance, I'm advising everyone to buy their tickets online, and meet at Flowers Cafe (355 Grand St.), across the street from the school. If we congregate there between 7:00 and 7:30pm, that should allow us to move across the street as a group, and possibly even sit somewhat near each other.

Here's the rundown on the "Dark Toons" screening:


Pens and pencils and puppets and more. Between them, this year’s selected animated works use just about every tool in the drawer to conjure their visual magic—from the coal-dusted industrial twilight world of Clockwork, to the rotten fruit and brittle husks of Blanche Fraise’s gloomy forest, to the psychedelic light show in 38-39c. But it’s not just the way these short films look. It’s also the way they move: some are lilting. Some are staccato. Some are controlled chaos. Together, they play like the movements of a symphony. Watch and listen.

It all happens at 8:00pm on Friday, May 25th. Tickets are $12 at the door, or $13.60 online here: ( ). If we can figure out a spot for the group to meet beforehand, I'll post instructions. See you there!
