DESCRIPTION

Kissing hats, elephants driving, a man who turns into the sun, and dinosaurs roaming the countryside rarely happen in real life, but at the stop-motion film screening Stop & Go all of this will become ordinary. Established filmmakers and visual artists using stop-motion, tell stories, examine visual phenomena, and make political statements in a collection of short videos.

Curated by San Francisco Bay Area artist and animator, Sarah Klein, Klein (who uses hand-drawn images and stop-motion animation in her own work), chose pieces that explore the possibilities of stop-motion processes. The animators breathe life into magazine cutouts, homemade drawings, everyday objects, and even the body itself. The result is a selection of videos that are humorous, poignant, and marvelous.
