KOMANEKO (2009)
Dir: Tsuneo Goda
60 min.
Japan
Exploration and filmmaking are fun for all ages when you see the world through the eyes of the curious cat Komaneko, an adorable stop-motion animated puppet popular with children and grown-ups the world over. This popular Japanese short-turned-feature combines inviting little vignettes that speak volumes through poetic meows, soulful music, and Komaneko's vivid facial expressions. You won't escape falling in love as you follow our young heroine on adventures with friendly woodland monsters, ghosts, and stuffed animals that come to life.

* please note: shorts program followinG KOMANEKO is not suitable for children.

6:30 pm
EXPERIMENTAL-ITY: A SHORTS PROGRAM
63 min.
Experimental-ity frees the mind of definitions and open its doors to a hodgepodge of animated wonders, talking animals, quirky humans, dancing mutants, Jesus, Satan, Love and, perhaps, the meaning of life. For a start with a bang, animals do the beatbox in Animal Beatbox. Love is all around in Bottle, where Snow and Sand pursue an impossible love story. A frantic dance shakes us up in Wilderness. When two graffiti tigers (Graffitiger) come to life, Love is the protagonist again. An artist looks at herself through stop-motion animation in Retrato de Noa (Portrait of Noa). Can paper animals discuss politics and sex? They sure can in Blood & Cinnamon. Black and white geometric shapes and the human body intersect in J's rotoscope animation. Whitelick and The Commandments, or the Nostril of Ektor Kaknavatos speculate over God, Jesus and Satan, but in antipodal ways: black & white versus color, love versus hate. When Religion fails, Love conquers all again. Hungarian Casanova Zoltan charms women, men, and animals alike while dancing mutants in Suspicion! remind us that everything is fleeting on earth.
