Documentary

Dream On Silly Dreamer - WORLD PREMIERE

Opened and introduced by the Director Dan Lund and Producer Tony West, who will be available to take questions after the screening.

Director: Dan Lund, Producer: Tony West, USA, 2004, 35mm/DVD, 40 min

Two years in the making, this new documentary marks the sad end of the hand-drawn art form that was the cornerstone of Disney classic animations. The company best known for its handcrafted feature animations, no longer wanted artists to draw for them. It tells of the infamous “Tom Meeting” on March 25, 2002 when more than 200 Disney artists at the legendary Feature Animation Department in Burbank were fired. Nearly 1300 skilled artists and craftsmen also lost their jobs at Disney studios in Paris, Tokyo and Florida. Director Dan Lund and first-time producer Tony West were also fired and documented themselves and their co-workers and friends by recording interviews that are charged with emotion. Audiences will listen in disbelief to the finest artists and animators in the business as they tried to make sense of their fate. Original whimsical animations are interwoven in the documentary in homage to the Disney legacy. “Not all fairy tales have a happy ending. No matter how much we wished they did.” Dan Lund.

WORLD PREMIERE at the Arc Cinema on 31 January at 20:00, also screens at UGC Screen 7, on 3. February at 16:00 and 19:00 with The Intolerance Trilogy, 2004, 35mm/DVD, 56 min (18+ audience)
