|APRIL21: COLBURN + GALLAGHER + GEISER + QUILLIAN +|
For the second of our SisPics diptych, AND to close our animation double-header, we’ve assembled a veritable mothership of animators--almost all women—making this showcase a regular on OC calendars! Featured is the West Coast debut of Martha Colburn’s Rotterdam-selected Western Wilds, her account of Karl May--the German writer who made the Western novel a fixture on European bookshelves--that turns into an auto-bio revelation of Martha’s own upbringing as a hick kid surrounded by guns. ALSO premiering are Kathleen Quillian’s (in person) Confidence Game, Ellie Vanderlip’s (in person) Egg Tree, Kelly Gallagher’s Your Gossip, Salise Hughes’ Eldorado, Leslie Supnet’s The Peak Experience (US Premiere), Abbey Luck's It's the Dsytopian Future, and the recent Silent Sister by none other than Janie Geiser! PLUS chestnuts from Helen Hill, Sally Cruikshank, and Mary Ellen Bute...and a couple from the boys--Ben Popp’s Sexy Noir and Winston Hacking/Andy Shauf’s The Worst in You.

President Donald Trump, his hair and skin alternating between various shades of orange/lemon yellow/yogurt pink, has galvanized American and global opposition to his policies, his insults, his general demeanor. And as “Orange is the New Black” reminded us, incarceration is always a risk for the disobedient and, perhaps, dissident.
