Animated Events: DFT Animation Club - My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea

It's Summer and the Detroit Institute's "DFT Animation Club" will be showing three animated films over the next three months. The first is My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea, scheduled for June 18th.

From the DIA Website:

"Sunday, June 18, 2017: 2:00 PM
Sunday, June 18, 2017: 4:00 PM
(USA/2016—directed by Dash Shaw)

From acclaimed graphic novelist Dash Shaw (New School) comes an audacious debut that is equal parts disaster cinema, high school comedy and blockbuster satire, told through a dream-like mixed media animation style. Dash (Jason Schwartzman) and his best friend Assaf (Reggie Watts) are preparing for another year of working on their widely-distributed but little-read school newspaper, when Dash learns of a cover-up by the school administration’s that puts all the students in danger. Hailed as “the most original animated film of the year” (IndieWire), it reminds us how the high school experience continues to shape who we become, even in the most unusual of circumstances."

Recommended for ages 13 to adult. (77 minutes)"
