On Saturday, April 8th at 2pm, join us at the FMC Screening Room (475 Park Ave. South, 6th Floor) for a dazzling program of collage animation films curated by Fox Ivo Yarden!


This exciting selection includes work that spans from the mid-1960s to the late 1990s, all featuring collage animation, a unique style used less frequently in the digital era. Some of these films - like Stan Vanderbeek's What, Who, How - influenced the appearance of collage animation in later, mainstream works, like those by Terry Gilliam (Monty Python).
