Feature Films : Animated Auteur Visions

Animated Auteur VisionsThe presence of WALTZ WITH BASHIR in competition at this year's Cannes Film Festival underlines the vital importance of personal animated works created for adult audiences. The worldwide success of such mature films as PERSEPOLIS and INNOCENCE offers further inarguable proof that film lovers are widely ready to embrace new animated auteur visions as well as the larger, audience-pleasing productions from the likes of Pixar and Dreamworks, and that there is nothing this challenging breed of filmmaking can fail to offer in its arsenal of emotions and intellect. With Animated Auteur Visions, Fantasia celebrates "the language of the lines" by collecting 4 distinctive masterworks created by some of the greatest visual artists of this generation. Angel wings will brush against your back, you will experience the after-effects of an atomic apocalypse and you will suddenly be very, very afraid of the dark.
