Oregon Cartoon Institute brings Harry Smith home to Seattle, where he attended the University of Washington in 1943-44.
Lori Goldston, Jessika Kenney and Susie Kosawa will provide live accompaniment for OCI’s multiple projector, expanded cinema version of Heaven & Earth Magic. The screening will take place at the Seattle International Film Festival Cinema on Tuesday March 18, 7:0o PM. SIFF Cinema is located at 511 Queen Anne Avenue North.
Seattle is the second stop on the Harry Smith Comes Home Tour! Preceded by Bellingham, and hopefully, at some point, followed by Anacortes. All three are communities where Harry Smith lived.
If you’re going to the SCMS conference, which takes place March 19-23, come and see me. I am on a panel titled Wet, Wired, and Weird: Pacific Northwest Film and Media Culture.
