Emily Hubley Shorts Program at the Aero

Emily Hubley has made acclaimed animated shorts for 30 years and provided animation to television, fictional and documentary films for over a decade. Her first feature film THE TOE TACTIC (2008) screened at film festivals including South by Southwest and New Directors/New Films.

The Hubley Shorts Program is approx. 60 min. This program features award-winning films by animation pioneers, Faith and John Hubley: (newly restored) TENDER GAME and WINDY DAY, and Faith Hubley's RAINBOWS OF HAWAI'I (1995), followed by some films (made between 1984 and 2000) by daughter, Emily, whose hand-drawn films explore memory and the turbulence of emotional life: THE TOWER (a collaboration with her sister Georgia Hubley), ONE SELF: FISH/GIRL, HER GRANDMOTHER'S GIFT (a collaboration with her mother, Faith Hubley) and PIGEON WITHIN.

L.A. premiere of THE TOE TACTIC, 2008, Orchard Pictures, 90 min. Writer/director/animator Emily Hubley's feature film debut, brings her great lineage, distinctive hand-drawn style and an entire artistic community to an offbeat cinematic hybrid that plays both melancholically and mischievously on the themes of time, memory, loss and yearning. Starring Lily Rabe, Xander Berkeley, Kevin Corrigan, Daniel London, Sakina Jaffrey, Jane Lynch, Mary Kay Place and Novella Nelson, with the voices of Don Byron, David Cross, Andrea Martin, Marian Seldes and Eli Wallach. Original score by Yo La Tengo. Discussion in between shorts program and feature film with director Emily Hubley.
