In celebration of Disability Awareness Month, Spindleworks Art Center and Spin Off Studios will present a collection of recent short animations at Frontier Cafe and Cinema 14 Maine Street in Brunswick. Audiences are invited to join in and watch “A Spindle in Motion”, a 30-minute series exploring the evolution of animation projects created at Spindleworks and Spinoff Studios. Included short films were created using flipbooks, stop motion, and cutout animation techniques. Selections will also include artist Crank Sturgeon’s collaboration with Spindleworks artists, which produced an animated montage of drawings created during residency this winter. A limited edition zine also produced during the residency will be available for sale.
As part of the matinee and evening screenings, Spindleworks will also present the 90-minute documentary film “Wretches and Jabberers”, produced by Academy Award winning filmmaker Gerardine Wurzburg. Wurzburg’s inspiring documentary chronicles the world travels of disability rights advocates, Tracy Thresher and Larry Bissonnette, in a bold quest to change attitudes about the intelligence and abilities of people with autism.
The entire program is open and free to the public, with donations welcome to cover the cost of the event and to support art programming at Spindleworks and SpinOff Studios.
