The American Cinematheque presents ANIMATION A-GO-GO! AN IN
PERSON TRIBUTE TO RALPH BAKSHI at the Egyptian (April 29 – May 1) and Aero (May 1) Theatres in Los Angeles. Blasted into public consciousness – and controversy – by the first X-rated cartoon, FRITZ THE CAT, legendary writer/director/producer Ralph Bakshi’s career in animation spans an astounding 50 years.
The series is highlighted by opportunities to see screenings of Bakshi’s personal prints of THE LORD OF THE RINGS & WIZARDS, two films that are rarely seen. A selection of Bakshi rarities including the World Premiere of an unseen Bakshi short and a series of long lost 1960s Coca-Cola commercials he made with Peter Max, the artist whose psychedelic work became an icon of the 60s.
