Animation Brüt short film programme at Close-Up (09 JUN 20:15).

Animation Brüt is a rejection of conventional storytelling and image making. It embraces the gestural, the fervent, and the fevered dreamers of sequential imagery. Animation has limits, Animation Brüt embraces them and licks the wrapping for more flavour. Featuring CGI lacerations, hammered steel stop motion, and queer yearnings fuzzed out on magnetic tape. Curated by Sam GurryAnimation Brüt is a night of experimental animation, presenting 12 films by creators outside its traditional paradigm who seek to break down its boundaries from the inside.” (Close-Up)

#QueerHorrorNights continue with a double bill of PSYCHO II & PSYCHO III at The Cinema Museum (Sunday 24 JULY 18:30): booking now!
