Ann Arbor Film Festival

The Ann Arbor Film Festival has been called the “hall of fame for experimental media,” and you can catch this year’s highlights at this weekend’s Aurora Picture Show. The 32 selected films range from Alain Delannoy’s Monument, a 12-minute animated piece about a boy who goes in search of his destiny, to Hammer and Flame by Vaughn Piikani, a ten-minute Indian documentary about a shipyard, where workers disassemble the skeletons of giant ships by hand. And there’s A Room with Askew, an animated film by the Australian filmmaker Gregory Godhard, which focuses on a hungry little creature trapped in a strange, “nothing is as it seems” room.
Sat., Aug. 18, 8 p.m.; Sun., Aug. 19, 3 p.m.
