Fear(s) of the Dark – From Drawing to Animation
A Multimedia Exhibition
Who doesn’t know what is it like being afraid of the dark? Is it the unknown that plagues us and provides fertile ground for the weirdest fantasies?
At last year’s Animafest we premiered the animated horror film Fear(s) of the Dark, an omnibus of short films by world renowned comic artists Blutch, Charles Burns, Marie Caillou, Pierre di Sciullo, Lorenzo Mattotti and Richard McGuire. Fear makes up the core of the film, expressed in each author‘s inimitable style. The one unifying quality is the choice of black and white imagery.
The exhibition reveals the developmental process of Fear(s) of the Dark. Through original drawings, storyboards, sketches, working tools, photographs, silkscreened posters and video materials of its making, the comprehensive show investigates the fascinating path from single image to film and the relationship between comics and animation.The multimedia exhibition at Kula Lotrščak will be opened until June 7th from 11am until 19pm. During the festival we will organise a guided tour of the exhibition with the presence of the producer Valérie Schermann.
