Hubley Studio Retrospective PART 3: Emily Hubley

Join us for a three-part retrospective of The Hubley Studio. The Hubleys have been pioneers of independent animation for over half a century. Their films transcend traditional animation narratives and techniques and delve into free-form color, motion, and emotion. As stated by John Hubley, “If you believe in this media as an art, and you believe yourself to be an artist, and you want to make films as an artist, you have to go ahead and do it; you have to make what you want to make, have control over it, and make it on your terms.”

Q&A with Emily Hubley following all screenings.

PART 3: Following the legacy of her parents, Emily Hubley has made animated shorts for over thirty years. Like Faith and John, Emily’s films are intensely personal, and often autobiographical. Animator John Canemaker observes, “the pictures are shot through with wry, pun-ny humor and take place in a dreamy, constantly metamorphosing world of overlapping shapes, textured cut-outs and glowing colors, where Picasso-esque characters search for identity and meaning in their lives.”
