Saturday March 18 at 8PM, screening of films by Martha Colburn, hosted by the New Orleans Photo Alliance (1111 St. Mary Street), organised by Shotgun Cinema.
Martha Colburn will be present in person to present a selection of her stop-motion animated films along with a show of puppets and an introduction. Starting with her Super8mm films made in Baltimore with Jad Fair (Half Japanese), the Boredoms, and her own band The Dramatics, she has produced over sixty short animations. Her 35mm film Cosmetic Emergency – a film about war and cosmetic surgery – premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2005. Tonight’s screening will also include some new films, including her Standing Rock protest animation, Myth Labs, about the American frontier and Meth use, and Metamorfoza, a stop-motion animated doll film which takes place in WWII.
Her style has been called ‘Monty Python meets Hieronymous Bosch’ and her work is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art (NY) and the Military Museum of Dresden, Germany.
