Teaching to See
This [film] is about patient and dedicated teaching, about learning to look and visualize in order to design, about the importance of drawing. It is one designer’s personal experience of issues that face all designers, expressed with sympathy and encouragement, and illustrated with examples of Inge [Druckrey]’s own work and that of grateful generations of her students. There are simple phrases that give insights into complex matters, for example that letterforms are 'memories of motion.' Above all, it is characteristic of Inge that in this examination of basic principles the word 'beautiful' is used several times.
An animated short that re-imagines Los Angeles as a city made up of nothing but corporate branding, populates it entirely with corporate logos and mascots, and then sets Ronald McDonald loose on a profane and by all accounts enormous bloody rampage of gun violence.
This is the first ever short film from French directing collective H5., François Alaux, Hervé de Crécy + Ludovic Houplain. It was presented at the Cannes Film Festival 2009. It opened the 2010 Sundance Film Festival and won a 2010 academy award under the category of animated short.
Happy hour starts at 5:30 and the film starts at 6:30
