International Animation

  • 79 mins

This screening allows you to catch up with a selection of the best animation from around the globe, and sees a welcome return to Edinburgh of the work of Don Hertzfeldt, who was our guest in 2009. Animation derives its name from the Latin ‘anima’ – which describes the soul. The creation of that life essence through the illusion of animation is even more fascinating when the loss of that animating principle is explored, as happens in many of the films presented here.
