Sketch Cinema: Utopia/Dystopia
FRIDAY, August 18th @ 6:30 - 9:00pm
Movies and drawing go together like popcorn and seasoned salt, so join us for a back-to-back double feature of both classics and not-so-classics. Grab a sketchbook, a few friends, and your best film appreciation glasses and hang out with us! Each month will have a different movie theme and a different creative challenge with big prizes.
This month, we’re exploring the dark, fantastical worlds of animation. Gandahar, a surreal French fantasy film by Rene Laloux (of Fantastic Planet fame), depicts a peaceful world threatened by mechanical warriors from beyond time… but is all what it seems? Run Time: 1h32m, Shown in French with English Subtitles, rated PG
Angel’s Egg is directed by Mamoru Oshii (Ghost in the Shell, Urusei Yatsura) with art direction by Yoshitaka Amano. More of an animated painting than a linear narrative, the film depicts a young girl protecting a mysterious egg in a desolate, neo-gothic city. Run Time: 1h15m, Shown in Japanese with English subtitles, Not Rated
There will be snacks and drinks available for purchase at the gallery.
Sketch Cinema is a low-pressure movie and draw night hosted at Light Grey. The event happens every 3-4 weeks, and if drawing isn’t your thing that’s ok! Feel free to kick back and enjoy the rotating cast of hand-selected flicks.
THINGS TO BRING:
A sketchbook and your prefered tools
This event is open to the public and free, so feel free to bring a friend! The event is 18+
We will be planning more Sketch Cinema events for the summer and fall seasons and beyond! Stay tuned for more!
