Dir. Priit Pärn
With an approach described as “an illegitimate cross-breeding of George Grosz, Monty Python, and Jean-Luc Godard”, Priit Pärn is one of the most adventurous and influential animators on the international scene. With an oeuvre of over fifteen animated films spanning five decades, he is forever winning awards, and his work has left its mark on a whole generation of young filmmakers as well as more unlikely descendants like the Rugrats TV show.
For this special presentation Priit will be here to show a selection of his funny, complex, and playfully surreal short films (amongst them Breakfast on the Grass and Hotel E), and will follow the screening with a talk about his work.
