Indianapolis film collector and archivist Eric Grayson digs into his vault to help present this treat-of-a-program of early stop-motion animation. Included are five short films from Willis O’Brien (1915-1930), It’s a Bird (1930) by Charley Bowers, and Ladislaw Starewicz’s Frogland (1923) and The Mascot (1934). (16mm presentation)

Live guitar accompaniment provided by local musician Jason Fickel.
