This week's special features in AWN's ever expanding store: The Ottawa Festival Catalog, with an Exclusive Stefan Schabenbeck Video!
- An Ottawa Festival Exclusive: the STEFAN SCHABENBECK VIDEO!The films of Polish animator Stefan Schabenbeck are clever, passionate, and often humorous condemnations of the absurd, dehumanized late 20th century. While Schabenbeck's work offers blunt critiques of communist bureaucracy within 1960s Poland, the themes of dehumanization that he expresses are as relevant today as they were thirty years ago. The 41-minute video includes: "Everything Is A Number," "Exclamation Mark," "The Drought," "Stairs," and "Wind and Invasion."
The Ottawa catalog also offers Festival Coffee Mugs, T-shirts and Official Catalogues for the 1988, 1990, 1996, and 1998 issues of the festival. In addition to detailed information about the films in competition and the filmmakers, each catalog features a number of in-depth, critical articles. Available in the Animation World Store.
