Puddle, pothole, portal Film Program in Collaboration with Anthology Film Archives
December 12, 13, 14 7:30PM
The films included comprise much of the research for Puddle, pothole, portal and touch on themes around live action and animation, the creation of early virtual worlds in cartoons, and the relationship between humor and technology. The programs include early 20th-century mainstream, yet subversive, cartoons by studios like Disney and Fleischer, which suggested comic reconfigurations of reality through machines; independent and artist films that continued these traditions; and Who Framed Roger Rabbit, the self-reflexive 1988 Disney film that addressed the history and future of cartoons. The programs are organized to explore the comical and absurd in a reality that is rapidly transforming through machines, industry and technology.
