March 8, 7:30: JOANNA PRIESTLY, ZAK MARGOLIS, and ROSE BOND

PORTLAND ANIMATION ALL-STARS

Three mainstays in the Portland amination scene, Joanna Priestly, Zak Margolis, and Rose Bond have been lighting up screens locally and abroad for many years.  Joanna Priestley‘s films explore abstraction, botany, landscape, aging and human rights, and have screened at venues ranging from MoMA to the American Cinematheque.  Rose Bond short films have been screened at the Sundance and the New York Film Festivals, and while her roots are in frame-by-frame, hand drawn and direct animation, her current work focuses on public site-based animated installations.  Zak Margolis‘ work explores both hand-drawn and computer generated imagery, and has screened at the PDX Film Fest  and the Northwest Film Festival.
