DMA Animation Professor Featured At The Trylon

John Akre Animation

The animation of John Akre, Adjunct Instructor in the Department of Digital Media Arts, will be featured in the Northern Exposure film series at the Trylon Microcinema on Wednesday, February 22 at 7 p.m and 9 pm. Northern Exposure is a series at the Trylon Microcinema in Minneapolis that features the work of a local filmmaker every quarter.

Akre is a prolific creator, teacher, and animation advocate. He founded the annnual MinnAnimate festival. This retrospective, spanning a decade, highlights his collage-like work- both fiction and nonfiction-all of which is visually imaginative and deeply honest.

The screening features more than 20 animated shorts created over ten years.


Akre will be present for a Q and A after each show.
