Is This Some Kind Of Joke?

Thursday 19th April, 2018

The Mockingbird | 18:30 - 19:45

Judging by this selection of shorts, the answer is yes. Bold, bizarre, impertinent, hilarious – the animated films in this programme all take a sideways look at life.

Rory Waudby-Tolley attempts to make Art for Laywers. Seo-Ro Oh, using brilliant visual metaphors, creates the best film on sneezing ever made (OO). In Knock Strike, we follow the character on his quest to find a VHS player (spoiler: a toaster won’t do the trick). If all this was not enough we climax with Don Hertzfeldt’s World of Tomorrow II, the sequel to “the best short film of the century.”
