Join us for a screening of the film, "Persistence of Vision" at FilmBar in Downtown Phoenix. The firm is about a visionary and acclaimed animator, Richard Williams ("Who Framed Roger Rabbit"), who toiled for more than a quarter of a century on to make the greatest animated film -- only to have it torn from his hands. Filmmaker Kevin Schreck has woven together mind-blowing animation, rare archival footage, and exclusive interviews with key animators and artists who worked with Williams on his ill-fated magnum opus to bring this legendary story to the screen. A tale of art, obsession, and dreams, "Persistence of Vision" is the untold story of the greatest animated film never made.
The film has been a phenomenal success at over 30 international film festivals and venues (and counting) on four continents. It's been a massive hit with audiences and critics around the world, playing to enthusiastic full-house crowds, in Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, South Korea, New Zealand, Melbourne, Seattle, Minneapolis, Boston, Oslo, France, Toronto, and beyond. The press has called it "[a] fascinating slice of film history" (Variety), "Grade: 'A'... [a] Herculean accomplishment" (indieWIRE), and "engrossing... Kevin Schreck's superb documentary is a surprisingly suspenseful portrait of a kind yet obsessive artist driven to exhausting extremes" (The Seattle Times). Additionally, the film was awarded the two biggest prizes at this year's Buffalo International Film Festival: the Audience Awards for Best of Festival and Best Documentary.
