A Bermondsey cinema is hosting a series of short animated films featuring an angora goat, a duck travelling to Paris, and animals working from home.
Kino Bermondsey on Bermondsey Square is putting on eight episodes of a stop-motion series by film company Interstellar Productions, as well as two more short films, next Tuesday (November 16).
Stop-motion is the painstaking medium of using physical objects and moving them frame-by-frame to create the effect of movement. It is perhaps known best from the Wallace and Gromit series.
The evening will also feature a question and answer session with the filmmakers – as well as a live demonstration of oil portrait painting in the interval.
The programme will feature “Adventure 112” which follows two angora goats and their quest for adventure through vast landscapes, from an underwater world to a mystical desert.
The company will also screen “WFH Animals”, a comedy short portraying animals dealing with working from home, and “City Duck”, depicting the exploits of an urban duck, who travels from her lake at home to Paris, where she enjoys time on a segway by the Louvre, coffee at the Ritz, and clubbing under the Eiffel Tower.
A spokesperson for the studio said: “Stop-motion continues to be a much revered medium and we hope that this wonderful shorts series – featuring magical animals on mysterious adventures – will captivate the imagination.
“The watercolours and expressive sculpting are at the heart of these films, along with our original soundtracks inspired by each landscape.”
Tickets are £15. For more information and to book click here.
