SOAR

Friday, July 7, 2017 at 7 PM - Part of our Short Films Program

Screening followed by a Q & A with filmmaker Alyce Tzue.

This delightful animated short film captures the benefits of teamwork. A young girl partners with her unexpected guest, a miniature boy whose airplane crashes on her picnic table, just as she’s trying to build her own plane from complicated blueprints. The pair work together with beautiful results.

Numerous awards, including 2015 Gold Medal Student Academy Award Winner

Filmmaker Alyce Tzue, recent graduate of the Academy of Art University, will join us for the Q & A.
