      Sponsor: Berkeley Art Museum
      Introduction Jeffrey Skoller
      In Person Jacqueline Goss

      Hybrid animated documentaries have become one of the most exciting and challenging areas of contemporary filmmaking. Traditionally, documentary and animation are placed at opposite poles of the cinematic spectrum: the aura of seriousness surrounding the social documentary, with its claims to truth and realism, and the frivolity of handmade cartoons, springing from the imagination, are seen as philosophical and political antinomies. This program features a series of short films, including two films by our guest, New York filmmaker Jacqueline Goss, which suggests the range of subjects and forms possible with this hybrid genre.
