An evening of this year's Oscar-nominated animated short films—in one exclusive program.

Memorable — Painter Louis and his wife Michelle are experiencing strange events. Their world seems to be mutating. Slowly, furniture, objects, and people lose their realism. They are "destructuring," sometimes disintegrating. D: Bruno Collet, France, 12m

“The short films … offer a vision of what the Academy Awards should and could be but very rarely are: eclectic, cosmopolitan, scrappy and surprising.”

A.O. Scott, New York Times
