A very special event for you lucky Northern Californians:
Thursday, November 20, 8 PM
San Francisco State University, Fine Arts Building's Coppola Theater (room 101), free, public invited
Gene Deitch will be visiting from Prague as the San Francisco International Animation Festival has invited him to the States for this retrospective program.
Gene says, “I will play a few films in two versions, with my original soundtrack and then substitute tracks imposed by the producers for weird and illogical reasons… As an example of what we who are paid to make films often have to put up with. It should be very revealing, with the stories behind the changes. These examples have never been shown publicly before!”
This program is presented by SF State's Animation Society and ASIFA-SF, a chapter of ASIFA, the International Animation Association.
