Women in Film and Video New England is thrilled to present animator, educator, and mentor Yvonne Andersen and her former student Amy Kravitz for an evening showcasing both of their award winning animated films including "We Will Live Forever" and "Roost." Yvonne Andersen's legendary "Yellow Ball Workshops" in the 1960's nurtured and inspired a generation of animators, filmmakers, and arts educators. Amy Kravitz began her animation career at age eleven. Today, Amy Kravitz holds Yvonne Andersen's former job, teaching animation at Rhode Island School of Design. This is a unique opportunity to see a collection of films from the Yellow Ball Workshop's Archive alongside current work by the filmmakers. Both filmmakers will be present.
