AAFF Animation Shorts @ Top of the Park
The Ann Arbor Film Festival will screen short films from its archive on Thursday evenings prior to feature films at Top of the Park. The shows begin at sundown (approximately 9:30pm).
This week short films that will precede Wes Anderson's "The Fantastic Mr. Fox" are:
Magic Cube and Ping Pong - Lei Lei, Beijing, China - 5 minutes [screened at the 48th AAFF]
Full of rich colors, textures and a 1980s video game style, this animated film weaves together elements of Eastern and Western culture into both a love story and an artist's statement on modern Chinese society.
White Out - Jeff Scher, New York, NY - 3 minutes [screened at the 45th AAFF]
A visual paean to the magic of snow, by artist Jeff Scher with music by Shay Lynch. Part of Sightlines, an Op-Ed visual series.
