An Evening With Tissa David

By Guest (not verified) | Saturday, January 18, 2003 at 11:00am
Begins: January 18, 2003

In a career that spans more than sixty years, animator Tissa David has brought to life characters as diverse as Mr. Magoo, Shakespeare's Titania, and Raggedy Ann. David broke through the male-dominated animation industry by becoming only the second woman (after Lotte Reiniger) to direct an animated feature, "Bonjour Paris", in 1953.

Born in Hungary in 1921, she attended the Academy of Beaux Arts in Budapest, where she also co-owned an animation studio. She escaped the Communist takeover of Hungary by moving to Paris in 1950, and then to the United States in 1955.
