International Shorts

Friday, August 17 (7:30pm)
$10 / Free for Aurora Members
Rush Process celebrates DIY, handcrafted animation as a unique vehicle for self-expression. This international competition screening is an eye-opening hour of highly personal, animated shorts made with physical media. The program provides a kaleidoscopic view of non-digital animation currents, including narrative, documentary, and experimental films made with stop-motion, multi-plane, hand-drawn, charcoal, cut-out, paint-on-glass, and direct animation techniques. (Be sure to arrive early to join the reception and animate yourself in the GIF booth!)

The Visionary Films of Suzan Pitt
Saturday, August 18 (7:30pm)
Rush Process and Aurora present a retrospective program of films by acclaimed painter and underground animation legend, Suzan Pitt. This career-spanning program features newly restored works including her surrealistic, animated noir Visitation (2011); the mixed-media exploration of depression and renewal Joy Street (1995); her early cut-out stop-motion examination of domestic life Crocus (1971); and cult favorite Asparagus (1978) which premiered at The Whitney before going on to stun audiences in theaters before David Lynch's Eraserhead.
