Even if you’ve not heard the name Don Hertzfeldt before, there’s a good chance you’ve seen his animation. The Austin-based cartoonist is the creator of such popular short films as Rejected, The Meaning of Life and Wisdom Teeth. His abstract, often surreal humor has arguably helped usher in an entire generation of similar animated programs such as the Adult Swim line-up on Cartoon Network.
The Alamo Drafthouse is proud to present an Evening with Don Hertzfeldt, an intimate showcase of the animator’s work — including the regional premiere of his latest short film plus an audience question and answer session.
Hertzfeldt will be bringing a 35mm print of his Everything will be OK films — a trilogy of short films about Bill, a young man who lives a mundane life but may, in fact, be suffering from a serious mental disorder. The final chapter in the trilogy, titled It’s such a beautiful day, will be presented for the first time in Houston. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see Hertzfeldt’s films the way they were meant to be viewed — on the big screen in 35mm. Really, how can your computer screen or iPhone compare to that?
