Animated Expressions 1 (94 min.) Man vs. Chimp, rats in pursuit of love, and art comes to life-with a vengeance! Animation lovers of all ages will enjoy the films in this program, including the 2007 Academy Award- winning animation The Danish Poet. In Atomic Banana (Erik Kling, USA 2006, 5 min.) a smart chimp versus smart human in the quest for the ultimate prize...Bananas! Life is just like dandelions. When the wind comes, they leave, but they won't disappear. They are just going to a new place to start a new life in Dandelion (Jackie Liao, USA 2006, 6 min.). Torill Kove's The Danish Poet (Norway/Canada 2006, 15 min.) asks: Can we trace the chain of events that leads to our own birth? Is existence just coincidence? Do little things matter? After her parents die in a tragic fire, a young girl is sent to an orphanage where she begins sketching fiery visions that eventually take on lives of their own in Troy Morgan's Dragon (USA 2006, 8 min.) First Flight (Cameron Hood, Kyle Jefferson, USA 2006, 8 min.) tells the story of an uptight, fastidiously organized businessman's perspective on life is forever changed through an unexpected encounter with a tiny fledgling bird. In Mirage, (Youngwoong Jang USA 2006 9 min.) a bio-mechanic robot has to fill his glass chest with water in order to sustain his life. During his journey, he meets a fish. Both need water... Alex Weil's One Rat Short (USA 2006, 10 min.) is the mesmerizing ballet of a discarded food wrapper that leads a New York subway rat into an adventure of love and loss. Having a bird's heart that beats loud and fast would make you feel different. In Tragic Story With Happy Ending, (Regina Pessoa, Canada 2006, 8 min.) if you're a little girl with such a heart, it may seem best to forget who you are and try to fit in. When Ujbaz Izbeneki descends into Hell, nobody is prepared for the chaos that follows in the wake of a man who has lost everything in Ujbaz Izbeneki Has Lost His Soul (Neil Jack, Scotland 2006, 5 min.) In an old radio a conductor tunes a medley of tracks revealing masked players hidden in Sarah Orenstein's Windows Masks Doors (USA 2006, 5 min.) In The Wraith of Cobble Hill, (Adam Parrish King U S A 2006, 16 min.) a teenage boy is asked by the kindly corner store owner to mind his dog while he is away.
