An Evening with Don Hertzfeldt – It’s Such a Beautiful Day
Cult animator and Academy Award® nominee Don Hertzfeldt (Rejected, Billy's Balloon, The Meaning of Life) joins SIFF in person with his classic animated shorts and the exclusive Seattle premiere of his newest film, It's Such a Beautiful Day, the final chapter in a trilogy about a mysterious man named Bill (the first film in the series, Everything Will Be Okay, won the Animated Jury Award at SIFF 2007). It will all happen on Thursday February 2, 2012 at SIFF Cinema Uptown.

Nearly two years in the making, the 23-minute film is Don's longest, and most ambitious, piece to date: blending traditional animation, experimental optical effects, trick photography, and new digital hybrids. The entire animated trilogy will be screened together for the first time on new 35mm prints, immediately followed by a live on-stage interview and audience chat with Don Hertzfeldt.
