Jay Schwartz and his Secret Cinema return to Moore College on Saturday, November 19 for an evening of wacky animation that kicks off at 8:00 PM. From the release:
“Most, but not all of what we’ll include in WEIRD CARTOONS 2011 was made for general audiences by major studios; some were made exclusively for the military and some were sponsored films with subtle advertising messages. Some (but not all) could be perceived as offensive by today’s standards. What these films, which were made from the 1930s through the 1970s, all share is a fearless aesthetic that is unafraid of the absurd; an often shocking sense of humor that is the polar opposite of today’s sanitized, cross-marketed Pixar sensations.
Nearly all of WEIRD CARTOONS 2011’s contents will be new material not used in our prior programs, and this may be their first big-screen showings since their original release.
AS ALWAYS with Secret Cinema events, the films will be shown using real film (not video) projected on a giant screen.”
