An Afternoon With Henry Selick

Downtown Independent

251 S. Main Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012

2:00pm

GLAS is proud to feature the work of an animator and director whose films have delighted and inspired a new generation of filmmakers: Henry Selick. As director of the films Coraline and The Nightmare Before Christmas, Selick has made some of the most internationally recognized animated films of all time. They were not only pivotal for the current resurgence of stop-motion, but helped transform the perception of what animation could be and what it could accomplish. His work showed general audiences that animation was not a form to be confined, but rather continuously explored in both its narrative and physical forms.
Henry Selick Joins us for an intimate conversation in which he will screen his personal shorts including Slow Bob In the Lower Dimensions, Seepage, Phases, and several surprises. We’ll have a Q&A with Selick led by GLAS co-founder Einar Baldvin.

Please join us after the screening for a reception hosted by CalArts Office of Alumni & Parent Engagement.

Margaret Glaspy

The Echo

1822 W. Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90026

8:30pm

"Emotions and Math" is not simply the name of Margaret Glaspy's new debut album. That expression drills right to the heart of the New York singer-songwriter's proper introduction, a mission statement both artistic and personal.

Glaspy, who's 27 and grew up in Red Bluff, California, self-produced the album, which frames her revealing ruminations in shards of jagged guitar rock. Building on its early buzz - Rolling Stone hailed first single "You and I" for its "hot barbs of electric guitar," and BrooklynVegan declared it a "stomping rocker with a DGAF attitude" - Glaspy prepares for a big year in 2016.
