“Hands” Screening and Q&A with UGFTV Professor John Canemaker

Still from, Hands

RSVP REQUIRED: http://bit.ly/handsscreening

Join Oscar-winning animator and animation historian John Canemaker for a screening and Q&A of his new animated short, "Hands".

This beautifully hand-drawn film is an adaptation of a story from Sherwood Anderson’s Winesburg, Ohio (1919). The film follows Wing Biddlebaum, a lonely former schoolteacher whose “hands” led to a scandal that drove him from his previous town and life’s calling. Following the screening, Canemaker will discuss the film and there will be an audience Q&A.

Canemaker’s The Moon and the Son (2005) received an Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film. He is the author of such books as Winsor McCay: His Life and Art (1987/2005), The Art and Flair of Mary Blair (2003), and Walt Disney’s Nine Old Men and the Art of Animation (2001), among many others. Hands was supported through a 2016–17 Wexner Center Artist Residency Award.

All guests are warmly invited to join us after the event for an informal reception.

Presented by the Department of Undergraduate Film & Television and the Tisch School of the Arts Office of the Dean.
