Between the 1950s and 1970s, animators John and Faith Hubley made their own independent films with intelligence, passion, humor, and great music. Their poetic sensibility and whimsical, impressionistic visual style fit perfectly with jazz music. “There’s something about jazz’s bending of time within a rigid format that also applies to animation,” Faith Hubley once observed. “That’s why they work so well together. It’s a marriage made in heaven.” Celebrating the centennial of Faith Hubley, this program features the filmmakers’ collaborations with Benny Carter, Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, Oscar Peterson, and others. These shorts are fun and engaging for all ages!
