Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Jan 31st at 7:10p for Oscar Nominated Short Films 2016 – 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: Historia de un Oso (Bear Story) (Chile), in which an old, lonesome bear tells the story of his life through a mechanical diorama; Pixar Animation Studios’ Sanjays Super Team (USA), about a young, first-generation Indian-American boy whose love for western pop-culture comes into conflict with his fathers traditions; We Cant Live Without Cosmos (Russia), in which two cosmonauts who are friends try to do their best in their everyday training life to make their common dream a reality; writer/director Don Hertzfeldts World of Tomorrow (USA), in which a little girl is taken on a mind-bending tour of her distant future; and Prologue (UK), in which a small girl bears witness as warriors battle to death during the Spartan-Athenian wars of 2,400 years ago. Additional animated shorts will also be shown. (Note: Prologue contains mature content and will be shown last, so that parents and caregivers can usher children out of the theater if desired. Other shorts in the program are acceptable for kids of all ages.)
