On Wednesday December 18th at 7:30pm, the new documentary Persistence of Vision screens at the Hollywood Theatre. Advance tickets are here.
Striving to make the best animated film of all time, visionary animator Richard Williams (Oscar-winning animation director of Who Framed Roger Rabbit) toiled for more than three decades on his masterpiece, The Thief and the Cobbler – only to have it torn from his hands.
Filmmaker Kevin Schreck has woven together mind-blowing animation, rare archival footage, and exclusive interviews with key animators and artists who worked with Williams on his ill-fated magnum opus to bring this legendary, forgotten chapter of cinema history to the screen for the very first time.
A tale of creative genius gone horribly awry, Persistence of Vision is the untold story of the greatest animated film never made.
