This afternoon of animation will include a juried program of shorts by women and then American filmmaker and animator Emily Hubley will screen a program of her films as well as those by her mother and animation pioneer Faith Hubley, who died in 2001. Faith, who often collaborated with her husband John, combined elements of myth, jazz and a deeply felt humanism into her films, which included the Academy Award-winning shorts: Moonbird (1959), The Hole (1962) and A Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass Double Feature (1966); as well as the Oscar-nominated Windy Day, Of Men and Demons, Voyage to Next and A Doonesbury Special. The film will be followed by a Meet-the-Artist Q&A. Admission is free.
Shorts Program: "All Our Lives Combined” includes Lingua Absentia by Kate Raney; The Biggest Wad is Mine by Samantha Gurry; More Dangerous Than a Thousand Rioters by Kelly Gallagher; The Mirror by Tori Huynh; Something Has Happened by Hannah Burke; Lady Disaster by Megan Barker; "I AM" A Meditation by Danielle Dunnigan; About Death by Eunjae Lee; Lady Secrets by Lori Damiano; Yogalaxy by Therese Schnoell; and Earth Emergency
