Difficult Viewing and Listening: An Experimental Animation Retrospective

Thu, May 17 / 7 pm
Curated and introduced by Murray Toews

Independent animators are driven to express themselves in bold and experimental ways in a world of conventional and standardized norms. Difficult Viewing and Listening: An Experimental Animation Retrospective is a testament to that spirit of experimental individualism. In this retrospective, we will dive into The Winnipeg Film Group’s rich archive of animation and experience selected works that will reignite your passion for experimental animation and sound.The evening will also feature a spontaneous combustible sound experience by AUOH (Chris MAMA Bauer).

Murray Toews  Biography

Murray’s creative work spans the disciplines and media of drawing, print, film, audio-art, interactivity and digital / analog hand-drawn animation that make use of thematic process-driven animation techniques that rapidly create animated shorts.

In 2004, he curated “Animator/Re-Animator” featuring Prairie animation with screenings in Canada and Japan. In 2012, his animated short Thought Camera, Reel One: “Circus of Objects” was the official selection for the NSI Online Short Film Festival and the 2013 Gimli Film Festival Manitoba program.“10 Years Before Happiness” is his latest short hybrid narrative animation film completed late 2017.
