Take a trip to the dark side of European animated movies with Rooftop Films’ annual program of uncanny and surreal short ‘toons. Featuring delightfully absurd morphing forms, horrifying explorations of divine terror, and felt figurines traipsing through nightmarish colonial landscapes, Dark ‘Toons surveys the extraordinary work being done by daring international independent animators. Highlighted by De Swaef and Roels’ masterful This Magnificent Cake!, the films in this program utilize groundbreaking visual innovations, eerie sound design, and rhythmic scores to amplify the powerful emotions embedded in their deeply affecting personal and political narratives
