"Jim Trainor makes deceptively simple films that inhabit the heads of creatures and characters as they go about their lives, uncovering basic truths that carry profound spiritual depth. Animating with thick, direct lines on unregistered paper, Trainor’s films are both historical and imaginative, artifacts of a completely original mythology. His narratives are a reflection of the harmony of the world: in their violence, they remain innocent, and in their simplicity, they find joy.
Jim Trainor is a professor in the Film/Video/New Media department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He will present a selection of his works and join us afterwards for a Q&A.
