The National Film Board of Canada (NFB) in association with ASIFA-Hollywood and Woodbury University Invites You to a Screening of its Latest Productions

World-renowned illustrator MICHÈLE LEMIEUX presents “Here and the Great Elsewhere” (2012), made in the pinscreen technique, first invented by Alexandre Alexeieff in the 1930s. Besides presenting her latest film, Lemieux will demonstrate the intriguing and mysterious pinscreen. If you’ve never seen a pinscreen animation, here is a rare opportunity to be astounded!

Winner of the Annecy Cristal for “Tragic Story with Happy Ending” (2006) and recently the Hiroshima Prize at the Hiroshima Festival for “Kali the Little Vampire” (2012), the Portuguese filmmaker REGINA PESSOA has developed a singular style using animated engravings. This internationally known artist will present her films and talk about her creative process.

If that isn’t enough, producer JULIE ROY will present three films representing recent NFB work. This one-time-only screening will be held at:

7:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 13th
Woodbury University Campus, Fletcher Jones Auditorium
