Doors 7:30 PM; LA Filmforum pricing

Filmforum is delighted to bring back Karen Yasinsky, after hosting her in 2014, with the LA premieres of films made since then, plus new opportunities to see some of her delightful earlier work. Yasinsky is the real deal, making simple and complex animations that are charming, resonant, beautiful, and a bit mysterious.  “Recent films by Karen Yasinsky evidence an interest in the fragment, using puppetry, animation, cinematic quotation and hints of narrative to trigger emotive positions of discomfort and empathy. Audition evokes a lonely haze of distance through the persistence of repetition. The assembled images comprising After Hours contrast violence with precarious grace and dance delicately between delirious heights and abject depths of experience. Marie—a rotoscoped animation based on Bresson’s Au Haard…Balthazar—is a brief assaultive animation commemorating its character’s fall from grace while Life Is an Opinion, Fire a Fact, oscillates from despair to serenity while contemplating suicide as depicted by Bresson and Tarkovsky.” (Steve Polta)  Tickets: $10 general; $6 for students/seniors; free for Filmforum members. Available in advance from Brown Paper Tickets at or at the door.  For more information: or 323-377-7238. FILMMAKER KAREN YASINSKY IN ATTENDANCE!
