End of the Line

Sunday, March 27 @ 2:15pm  |  Brattle Theatre

Animation allows the filmmaker to expand past reality. Not content to photograph the world as it exists, these films explore the thoughts and shadows that haunt us. Memories? Dreams? Unnamed anxieties? All are equally real. A variety of styles are presented here; from the tender family portraits of “Standard Life”, to the impressionist abstraction of “Mer Depré”, to the harsh scrawl of “The Lingerie Show”, the medium and message intertwine to form a whole.

Please join us in this journey through the dark, grown-up world of animated short films. You might leave with some haunted dreams of your own.
