Some of the most original animations we have seen in years. —The New York Times 

Expect a full body experience including live music, short films, and improvised narration—an evening spent on the verge of collapse with wobbly guitar, musical saw, banjo, fiddles, trumpets, accordion, drums and adamantly hand-made animations. Watch Brent Green’s films (Susa’s Red Ears, Hadacol Christmas, Paulina Hollers, Abe Lincoln, Carlin, Louisville/Gravity, and Walt Whitman’s Brain) accompanied by Brendan Canty of Fugazi, Jim Becker of Califone, Alan Scalpone of the Bitter Tears, Rodney McLaughlin, and Brent Green himself. Green has shown previously at the Sundance Film Festival and at several museums and festivals around the world. 


Public programs are made possible, in part, by major gifts from the Annenberg Foundation, and Ann and Jerry Moss. Additional support is provided by Laura Donnelley, Bronya and Andrew Galef, an anonymous donor, and the Hammer Programs Committee.
