Bill Plympton Idiots and Angels
Idiots and Angels
One of Americas most acclaimed, outrageous, and brilliant independent animators, Bill Plympton visits to introduce and discuss his two most recent films.
Shortlisted for the Best Animated Film Academy Award, the wildly inventive feature film Idiots and Angels sees a barfly discover a pair of wings sprouting from his back. After being ridiculed by his friends, he repeatedly tries to hack the wings off but they take control of him and force his acts of cruelty into gestures of kindness. Featuring music by Tom Waits. (78 mins., 35mm)
Plympton's brand new, multi-award-winning short, The Cow Who Wanted to Be a Hamburger, opens the evening. The film is an unusual children's fable about the power of advertising, the meaning of life, and the test of a mother's love. (6 mins., 35mm)
Plympton will sign copies of his new book, Independently Animated, and DVDs at the Wexner Center Store at 6 pm.
