This program explores the worlds of animator and screenwriter Harrie Geelen, one of the biggest names in Dutch animation history. Geelen was a screenwriter, animator, director, and creative director at the famous Toonder Studio, won a Golden Calf for his film Getekende Mensen in 1985, and wrote the scripts for Kunt U mij de weg naar Hamelen vertellen, mijnheer?. We’ll present a selection of Geelen’s shorts and commercials, while the master himself will be present for a Q&A!
Writer Jan-Willem de Vries will launch a new DVD showcasing the rich diversity of Geelen’s animation styles. And we’re screening a short documentary on this versatile and colorful character by Hans Walther.
Includes films from the EYE archives.
