The Animated Films of Suzan Pitt

The Animated Films of Suzan Pitt

Suzan Pitt will be in attendance for introduction and post-screening Q&A

Suzan Pitt’s works have pushed the boundaries of the animated film form, thriving in both the art world and the television, theatrical and festival venues. She has had major exhibitions at the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Holly Solomon Gallery in New York and the Stedlijk Museum in Amsterdam. She has designed two operas in Germany which were the first operas to include animated images for the stage (Damnation of Faust and The Magic Flute). In addition, Pitt has created two large multi-media shows at the Venice Biennale and Harvard University.

A retrospective of her animated films was presented at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 2006 and her films have been presented at the over 100 venues around the world, including the Film Forum in New York, Ottawa International Animation Festival, Sundance Film Festival, Morelia International Film Festival in Mexico and the Image Forum Film Festival in Tokyo, Japan. Pitt is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Fulbright Scholar Award, three National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships and a Rockefeller Fellowship. Her work is in the permanent collection of the Walker Art Center, The Museum of Modern Art and the Filmmuseum in Amsterdam.

Suzan Pitt currently teaches experimental animation at California Institute of the Arts. She lives in Los Angeles, Mexico and her remote cabin in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. – Ann Arbor Film Festival
