Experimental animator Helen Hill was known for the bright hand-crafted aesthetic she brought to so much of her work and life. Her films blend an exuberance for life and care for others with personal stories and themes of mortality. This program embraces the whimsy, the sadness, the fun, and the contemplation in Hill’s films as intertwining threads that encourage us to cushion our pain with love, and celebrate the brevity of our time on earth by demonstrating love and care to one another and our communities. Join us in celebrating and remembering an icon of our local film and animation community!

This program is co-presented as part of Mayworks.
