Buy Tickets

A collection of surrealist animation shorts—from the studios of Universal and Warner Brothers to independently made cartoons—compiled by Tom Klein, Loyola Marymount University’s Chair of Animation, whose resume includes having cataloged the Walter Lantz Archives. Klein’s expertise also points him toward surreal animation, in particular the work of Shamus Culhane, who followed the Los Angeles track of the Avant Garde Movement.
