Film Voyagers - Munk and Lummy
Munk & Lemmy
Janis Cimemanis and Nils Skapans, 1994, 70min
Munk & Lemmy is an award-winning series of stop-motion animation from the famed Latvian animation studio, Animacijas Brigade. Munk and Lemmy are best friends. Munk is a bear and Lemmy is, well something smaller and cute; a cross between a porcupine and an anteater. In this series of short films, Munk and Lemmy have hilarious hijinks, meeting an alien, a mouse, gathering fruit from trees and enjoying life. Although they emit noises, grunt and squeaks in Latvian, the films need no translation as their noises are universal. Visually compelling, Munk & Lemmy is one of the hallmark programs of Animacijas Brigade and it is through the studio's generosity that we are able to bring the lovable duo to the Maysles Cinema. Suitable for all ages.
Concurrently: First free trial session of the class 'World Cinema Club' for 7-11 year olds. To register, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
