Jim Trainor makes deceptively simple films that inhabit the heads of creatures and characters as they go about their lives, uncovering basic truths that carry profound spiritual depth. Animating with thick, direct lines on unregistered paper, Trainor’s films are both historical and imaginative, artifacts of a completely original mythology. His narratives are a reflection of the harmony of the world: in their violence, they remain innocent, and in their simplicity, they find joy. Jim Trainor is a professor in the Film/Video/New Media department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He will present a selection of his works and join us afterwards for a Q&A.
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.
