Metro Art Presents: Waking Life
Friday, November 15 from 8PM to 10PM (Doors at 7:30) -- Union Station Ticketing Hall
Metro Art Los Angeles is pleased to present “Waking Life” (2001, 99 min, Dir. Richard Linklater) as the final installment of our animated film series at Union Station.
This screening is free and open to the public. Seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Special guest to introduce the film.
“Waking Life” tells the story of a man (voiced by Wiley Wiggins) who is trying very hard to understand what separates dreams from reality. As he wanders the world, everybody he meets engages him in an existential discussion; sometimes he responds, sometimes he just listens. And though they're all approaching life from different angles - sociological, religious, scientific, artistic - could it be that they're all trying to tell him the same thing?
This series examines different animation techniques that have paved the way for the genre.
