Preceded at 7 pm with an interview with one of Canada's legendary animators, Pierre Hébert. Hébert will reflect on how the techniques and challenges of animation's past have shaped the medium today.
The tools of expression in animation, video and sound art are showcased in this performance/screening program in order to yield a large field of possibilities - social commentary, abstraction, process-based creations, and portraiture.

Entity Mülheim is an audiovisual installation that has also been issued as a double DVD release. The entity referred to in the piece is a district of Cologne, characterized in two ways: through two individuals, who could be regarded as typical for the two biggest population groups in Mülheim (on the one hand the German population, on the other hand the Turkish immigrants respectively the integrated Turkish-Germans, first through third generation) and by its architectural and urban conditions. The latter are also affected by social and economic circumstances.
