An Evening with PES

Ages 8 and up

Zoom: Family Film Festival

Each year the Wex brings families and film fans a long weekend of incredible movies for all ages: fiction and documentary, live action and animation, features and shorts, American-made and international, contemporary and classic. Fun activities and events are also part of the schedule, often involving special guests, hands-on projects, and even tasty refreshments.

With his stop-motion animations made from household objects, PES (aka Adam Pesapane) makes the world around us feel like a place full of possibility and play. In a presentation sure to delight all ages, the filmmaker and digital artist visits to share many of his inventive short films and commercials and to talk about his creative process. Last year his 95-second-long Fresh Guacamole became the shortest film ever nominated for an Academy Award. PES is currently at work on creating a movie adaptation of the Garbage Pail Kids (from the notorious trading cards of the mid-1980s). (app. 80 mins., video)
