BFI presents: COMING OF AGE: A New History Of British Animation Part Two

In post-WWII Britain animation flourished as both an industry and an art form. This programme highlights the work of Halas & Batchelor and Bob Godfrey alongside some less familiar players, and features a journey into joyful abstraction through three films by Yellow Submarine director George Dunning.
