TONIGHT in LA: "The New And The Dark" at Cinefamily


Tonight at The Cinefamily in Hollywood, at 10pm, an extreme screening of raw new animated shorts – Animation Breakdown: THE NEW AND THE DARK. 

Prepare for indelible images that will push you way beyond your comfort zone, as this specially-curated mix — co-presented by GLAS Animation — is comprised of the newest, boldest animated shorts by notable artists from around the world. Not for the faint of heart. NOT appropriate for children.

The evening’s lineup runs from “fish that morph into women-who-morph-into-coffee-cups-that-morph-into-penisis, a tongue that sticks to walls and girls wearing animal skins to straight-up wolf sex”, this collection of substantial shorts (each 10-20 minutes long) from Australia, Poland, Russia, Spain, and the U.K. exemplify the narrative and visual genius of this great medium today.
