About

The 19th Animation Show of Shows represents the work of artists from eight countries, including nine women. Funny, moving, engaging, and thought-provoking, the Animation Show of Shows not only has something for everyone, but is a remarkable and insightful microcosm of our world. Perhaps the most relevant film in the show is a 50-year-old short that was restored by The Animation Show of Shows with grants from ASIFA-Hollywood and The National Film Preservation Foundation. “Hangman,” by Paul Julian and Les Goldman, and based on a poem by Maurice Ogden, explores themes of injustice and personal responsibility in its tale of a town whose residents, afraid to speak up, are methodically executed by the title character.
