New York animation filmmakers Bill Plympton and Pat Smith will present a screening of recent hand-drawn animation this Thursday, August 23, in Manhattan. The line-up includes the American premiere of Hisko Hulsing‘s masterful 18-minute short Junkyard, which alone makes the screening worth attending. There will also be preview footage from Bill Plympton’s upcoming feature Cheatin’. The screening is FREE and open to the public. It begins at 7pm at the SVA Theatre (333 W. 23rd Street, between 8th and 9th Avenue).
