Silver Lake Film Festival featuring Saturday Morning Cartoons: Sunday, September 16 - Sunday, September 23, 2001, Los Angeles, California USA
Shorts in this all-animation program for grown-ups range from director Kathy Smith's "Indefinable Moods," an exploration of symbols and landscapes in nature that link to psychological hopes, fears and desires that exist in every culture to Hilary Wilder's stop-motion Rudolf the-red-nosed-reindeer redux "Everybody's Got Problems." This wildly inventive animated video re-edits the familiar characters from the 1964 special "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" with overlayed audio from the Billy Wilder/Ray Milland classic "The Lost Weekend," resulting in an unlikely narrative in which the reindeer and elves at the North Pole grapple with the specter of alcoholism. The Saturday Morning Cartoons program screens one time only on Saturday, September 22 at 11AM at the Los Feliz Cinema.
