Madcap Modernism: Mid-Century Cartoons from UPA and Beyond

Begins: March 30, 2012

Modernism was enthusiastically embraced by animators of the 1950s. Led by Hollywood’s United Productions of America (UPA) studio, animators began exploring new styles and designs diametrically opposed to the fairy-tale worlds created by Walt Disney. Esteemed animation historian Jerry Beck curates and hosts two programs of theatrical cartoons, presented in conjunction with California Design. Both programs offer visually-exciting—and rarely seen—cartoons in 35mm and include several Oscar-winning shorts.
