Journey Back 30 Years!


The 16th Tournee of Animation Returns!
The SF Exploratorium, March 22, 7:30pm 

For ASIFA-SF’s March event, we are proud to (re)-present this legendary program of animated films from around the world. A state-of-the-art (for 1981) collection curated by Prescott Wright, this amazing presentation will be shown from a pristine 16mm print—say what you will about DVDs, there’s a shimmering brilliance to analog projection from a good source.
