Animated Documentaries part 1 – Portraits


Sunday, April 5th - 7:00 PM

Los Angeles Filmforum presents Animated Documentaries part 1 – Portraits. Tonight we look at the range of possibilities of portraits – biographical moments, short profiles, and pointed interviews. Going beyond the filmmaker (we’ll look at autobiographical films later), these play with external representations to bring out key aspects of the personalities of the subjects. Including Talking About Amy by Yurico Murakami, McLaren’s Negatives by Marie-Josee Saint Pierre (2006), Backseat Bingo by Liz Blazer (2003), Repetition Compulsion by Ellie Lee (1997), Conversation with Haris by Sheila Sofian (2001), The Beloved Ones by Samantha Moore (2007), Mouseholes by Helen Hill (1999) – portrait of grandfather, Uncle Ma’an by Sahar Alsawaf (2007), The Even More Fun Trip by Bob Sabiston (2007)
