Tall Tales and True: The Animations of Dennis Tupicoff Film & In Conversation
29 Apr 2023
Gallery of Modern Art & Cinema A
Join us for a special one-day screening and In Conversation event from 11am until 3pm with award-winning independent Australian animator, Dennis Tupicoff to celebrate the release of his new film The Only Photograph of Emily Dickinson, American Poet.
Born in Ipswich and growing up in the Brisbane suburb of Darra, Dennis Tupicoff is an internationally celebrated animator known for using hand-drawn animation and live action to create films that explore portrayals of life and death on screen. Presented across two screening sessions titled 'Matters of Life and Death' and 'The Mirror with a Memory', this is a unique opportunity to see Tupicoff’s full suite of animated films and to hear more about the key themes and processes from the filmmaker firsthand in a live In Conversation with the director of the animation program at Griffith Film School, Dr Peter Moyes.
As part of the event, Dennis will be available to sign copies of his new book ‘Life in Death: My Animated Films 1976–2020’ which is available to buy through the QAGOMA store.
