“Looking out my window, I see my world has changed. The sun won't rise this morning.” Whether you desire dark, introspective, or tubed-meat undertones, this year’s stop-motion and hand-drawn animation shorts program will take you on locomotive rides both comedic and surreal. Kicking off the journey is Tamara Hahn’s Gnosis (US, 5 min), featuring a monster’s desire to steal a baby, followed by Santiago “Bou” Grasso’s Father (Argentina, 12 min), in which a woman ponders over her dear wartime leader. José Miguel Ribeiro takes us on a gorgeously illustrated Journey to Cabo Verde (Portugal, 17 min). Then Eric Cheng’s Higher Sky (US, 6 min) slaps a kung-fu lesson to a monkey and swallow. Brats and chicken sizzle alive at the beach in Carlo Vogele’s Wurst (US, 6 min). The animation train screams to a stop with visual effects master Phil Tippett’s first installment of Mad God (US, 11 min), where characters writhe in macabre, nightmarish splendor.
