Trans* at the Animation festival KLIK!
On November 9 from 2:30 pm I will be speaking on a panel with fellow animation enthusiasts Jiro Ghianni, Petra van Dijk, and Rein Anspach! All of us are discussing “Transgender modes to decode” popular media. Marije Janssen will moderate and clips from everything from Mario Bros. games to underground cinema will be shown. Organized by KLIK! and hosted by EYE Filmmuseum.
The talk show is called “Transgender Modes to Decode”. Come hear some wonderful people speak about how they relate to cartoons, games, and animated films from childhood to today. We will share our views on how we can use a trans* perspective to look at everyday animation.
KLIK! is a yearly showcase of the best animation films. The 7th edition on November 4 – 9 2014 will be held in the Dutch film institute EYE in Amsterdam. They say, “This years theme: ‘Boys, Girls & Beyond!’ That’s right! We’ll be taking you on a genderbending ride, stopping at male, female, and all stations in-between.”
