About This Screening

Nancy Andrews—animator, performer, and professor—has been making 16mm films for ten years. Her unique ability to combine live action, puppetry, and various forms of drawn animation, inspired by early film and vaudville, is highlighted in her recently completed Ima Plume Trilogy (Monkeys and Lumps, The Dreamless Sleep, and The Haunted Camera) . Ima Plume, chalk talk specialist and public illustrator, is the central character in these part fiction/part documentary films which traverse from historic figures, monkeys, globsters, the human relationship to the unknown and unseen, to the investigation of her own death. Nancy Andrews will also screen three early animation shorts by pioneers Emil Cohl, J. Stuart Blackton, and Max Fleischer.
