Writer and critic David Crowley chairs a discussion on why Poland has produced some of the richest animation in the world. With writer and curator Maxa Zoller, illustrator Andrzej Klimowski and film scholar Suzanne Buchan.
The Panel Discussion is part of Watch Me Move: The Story of Animation, a major showing of animated imagery produced in the last 150 years - from Snow White and Mickey Mouse to Avatar. Featuring a number of Polish animators and filmmakers, the exhibition is a fascinating story of animation and examination of how contemporary artists and filmmakers have appropriated the language of animation for their own purposes, with an insight into the history of animation from the development of the moving image.
Organised by Etiuda & Anima and supported by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute in Warsaw and the Polish Cultural Institute in London as part of the International Cultural Programme of the Polish EU Presidency.
