Hubley Studio Retrospective PART 2: Faith Hubley

Still from Rainbows of Hawaii (1995) by Faith 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.

Screening two concentrates specifically on the work of Faith Hubley after the death of her husband. Her unique aesthetic grew more pronounced as she strove to separate her solo work from her career with John as a couple. Joe Morgenstern of the Wall Street Journal wrote, “her animation teems with images so zestful, so restless and, for the most part, so joyous that they seem to be celebrating their release from the tubes of paint and bottles of ink.”
