Free, but seating is limited. Sixteen exceptional and inspiring animated shorts from around the world, recommended for ages 6 and up.
Films include Niki Lindroth von Bahr’s Annecy Grand Prix–winning The Burden, a melancholy, funny, and moving film that focuses on the tribulations, hopes, and dreams of a group of night-shift employees, as well as David OReilly’s playful and profound Everything, based on the work of late philosopher Alan Watts.
