Kahlil Gibran’s the Prophet

with Joan Gratz

the Prophet, ASIFA, Cascade ACM SIGGRAPH, Joan Gratz, animation

Highly recommended: Thursday December 3, 7:00pm @ Cinema 21, 616 NW 21st Ave, Portland 97209, FREE for ASIFA members.

Exiled artist and poet Mustafa embarks on a journey home with his housekeeper and her daughter; together the trio must evade the authorities who fear that the truth in Mustafa’s words will incite rebellion.

The Prophet, by celebrated Lebanese author Kahlil Gibran, is among the most popular volumes of poetry ever written. In this breathtaking feature film, eight of Gibran’s poems are interpreted by contemporary master animators — including Tomm Moore, Song of the Sea, Bill Plympton, Your Face, Nina Paley, Sita Sings the Blues, and Portland’s own Joan Gratz, Mona Lisa Descending a Staircase.

Oscar-winner Joan Gratz will be present to talk about this unique film collaboration, her segment in it On Work, and her pioneering development of “clay painting.”

Only ASIFA members may attend, but anyone may join! Pre-existing members simply check in at our lobby table. Cascade ACM SIGGRAPH members enjoy a $5 discount on their membership at the door. LAIKA employees & PNCA animation students show institutional ID. Free for children age 12 and under if accompanied by an ASIFA member parent. Seating is limited to 76 persons; first come, first served. Doors open at 6pm.

General membership $20, students and Cascade ACM SIGGRAPH members $15 — it’s worth the price for this event alone! Join or renew here: www.asifaportland.org/join-asifa-portland.

Italian Animation

film1

Cascade ACM SIGGRAPH and ASIFA Portland celebrate international art film

ANIMAZIONI! reveals Italy’s contemporary animation scene through 17 short films. The devil, a beautiful woman, the staring eyes of a disembodied head… There is often a dream-like quality in these films, fleeting glimpses of mysterious spaces inhabited by nameless beings suspended in time. A painterly tradition shines through — but also a powerful impulse to break the chains of convention. Perhaps you’ve seen one of BLU’s colossal graffiti animations, where mutating giants scramble across the sides of actual buildings? (If not, you must!) You’ll see this along with a host of artists that won’t be experienced anywhere else. Giovanni Munari, an Italian animator traveling abroad, brought these films along with him in his suitcase, hoping to find an audience in the USA. Acting as Portland’s animation embassy, ASIFA and Cascade ACM SIGGRAPH are proud to help share this rare, international gift.

Tickets and Transportation

  • Tickets: $5 General Admission
  • FREE for Cascade ACM SIGGRAPH & ASIFA Portland members
