I am a banana

Film Club presents a Chronicle of Short Films by Don Hertzfeldt

“My spoon is too big!”
“I am a banana!”

You may recognize these classic lines from Don Hertzfeldt animated viral short Rejected (2000) where a series of off-the-wall family channel infomercials are compiled into a hilarious and bizarre experience. What you may not know however is that Don’s repertoire extends much further than random dark humor of Rejected! He has a large body of work that has gone largely unnoticed by the mainstream audience and I think it will be worthwhile to see what else he’s done. Don’s Academy-Award nominated and Palme d’Or winning animated works have received over one hundred and fifty awards around the world!

So for film club’s final screening, we’re going go through a chronicle of Don Hertzfeldt’s works!
