“The Oscar Nominated Short Films 2012: Animation” – Feb 12th

Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Feb 12th at 7:10p for The Oscar Nominated Short Films 2012: Animation at the Kendall Square Cinema . Look for Sean wearing a nametag in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see all five Academy Award nominees in the category of Best Animated Short and more! Program includes: “Dimanche/Sunday” (Canada), in which every Sunday, it’s the same old routinethe train clatters through the village, Grandma will get a visit, and Dad dreams about his toolbox in church; “The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore” (USA), a poignant, humorous allegory about the curative powers of story, inspired in equal measures by Hurricane Katrina, Buster Keaton, The Wizard of Oz and a love for books; Pixar’s “La Luna” (USA), a timeless coming-of-age fable of a young boy whose Papa and Grandpa take him to work for the very first time, rowing in an old wooden boat far out to sea; “A Morning Stroll” (UK), a whimsical tale in which a New Yorker meets a chicken on his morning walk; and “Wild Life” (Canada), the story of an Englishman who moves to Calgary on the Canadian frontier in 1909, but is singularly unsuited to it.
