“It’s true that Dennis has spent 45 years dealing with this subject, mainly in animation. But his films are about other things too. Some are funny; some are sad. There are cartoons and documentaries, autobiographical stories and radio interviews, singing skeletons and film stars like Ava Gardner and Frank Sinatra, savage dogs and bucking bulls, game shows and a dying man’s hallucinations. He uses various animation techniques and live-action, and music from Chopin to bluegrass and gospel rock. So it’s complicated. All the big questions will be answered in this talk, with special screenings of two shorts – old (1976) and new (2018).”
GLAS Animation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 2014. Our core mission is to cultivate and promote the art and science of animation. We provide a unique platform for independent animation, champion diverse and underrepresented voices, and emphasize exceptional directors and artists that push visual, conceptual, and narrative boundaries within the cinematic artform. We are a community-driven organization that not only exhibits animated films, but creates a context and language for a shared understanding and appreciation of animation in the United States.
