On Saturday, November 28th, join Cinefamily as they screen this ambitious, highly faithful late-’40s Alice adaptation that took years to complete, and features an abundance of impressive, meticulous and labor-intensive stop-motion work from pioneer puppeteer Lou Bunin.  Remarkably, the film stays true to the original novel’s anarchic construction, and the inspiration of Victorian illustrator John Tenniel’s Alice imaginings. Originally suppressed by Disney for fear of its potential upstaging of their own animated Alice, Bunin’s work comes to you at the Cinefamily in a rare screening of a beautiful MOMA-restored 35mm print!  Plus KSPC’s DJ Dia of The Songs For The Whippersnapper Show will be spinning live before the shows!

Tickets are $12 and members are free.  Screenings at 5:30 and 7:30.  Cinefamily is located at 611 N Fairfax Avenue in Los Angeles.  To purchase tickets and for information visit www.cinefamily.org.
