LIAF’s Animation Spot presents: Late Night Bizarre Part 2, The Proud Archivist, London

April 2, 2014
9:00 pm

The Animation Spot’s second outing at The Proud Archivist brings another two programmes, this time celebrating the bizarre!

This is the second programme – a compendium of the strangest or funniest (not always the same thing) films drawn from the 2000+ submissions we receive every year. Expect smatterings of mindless violence, intriguing alternative views of the world, a few gutbusters and a visual overload or two. A LIAF tradition and a reminder – if one is needed – that animation knows no imaginative boundaries!

So sit back, buckle up and check out this collection of psychotic giggling farmers, animals getting their heads ripped off, drunk babies, lion penises and probably the most offensive films we’ve screened in the history of LIAF.

Tickets are £7 and one ticket gets you into both programmes!

WARNING: THIS PROGRAMME CONTAINS GRAPHIC CONTENT WHICH MAY OFFEND.
