KINO ANIMATION (Cert PG) @ Central Library
Saturday 31st May, 12.30pm
A kaleidoscope of animation techniques ranging from brilliant CGI in the moving tale of ‘Little Freak’ to traditional cel painting in ‘Sebastan’ which visualises the technicolour imagination of a child escaping from the monochrome world of adult life. Familiar environments are re-imagined by the ingenious ‘Daybreak’ using simple story board layouts, and time, space and gravity are redefined through the medium of everyday materials in ‘The Other Worldly’.
