St. Louis International Film Festival and Webster University Film Series Present An Evening with Bill Plympton
November 8, 2011
What: Animator and illustrator Bill Plympton provides an evening’s worth of entertainment with a generous selection of his gut-busting and mind-bending shorts. Plympton, whose life and work is also explored in “Adventures in Plymptoons” (see November 12 screening) introduces and discusses each film. The program includes (among other films) several new works (“Summer Bummer,” “Waiting for Her Sailor,” the work-in-progress “Cheatin’”) and two recent collaborative projects: “Guard Dog Global Jam,” in which animators from around the world do a cartoon jam of Plympton’s Oscar®-nominated “Guard Dog”; and “Flying House,” a Plympton-restored classic by animation pioneer Winsor McCay. Every attendee will receive a Plympton sketch. With Plympton, who is honored with SLIFF’s Lifetime Achievement Award. (approximately 120 min.)
