The next offering in the Spring 2011 Free Film Festival will be Nine Nation Animation, which is scheduled to be shown at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 8, in Leach Theatre. The film is free and open to the public.
This 2010 film is rated PG-13 and is a compilation of new animated featurettes, including a Chinese monk who sets out on foot with a tiger during the Tang dynasty and happens upon the giant Buddhas of Bamiyan; two blue-collar workers dissect the meaning of a “normal” life, as the world crumbles around them; a box of matches succumbs to the appeal of a cigarette; and four people recount various encounters with an unforgettable rite of passage.
