Now that a hint of spring is in the air, it's a great time for the Woodstock Film Festival and the IFC Center to present The Battle of the Sexes, animation-style, on Monday, April 12 at 9:00 p.m. (Still from Bill Plympton's How To Make Love to a Woman.)
The screening will be followed by a Q&A session with some of the animators and the programmers. Woodstock Film Festival's animation programmers, Bill Plympton and Signe Baumane, square off, each showing a selection of the funniest, sexiest animated shorts they could find in a 5-round match to discern which gender makes the hottest cartoons. The audience gets to decide the winner.
The five selections from the ladies will be: The Teat Beat of Sex by Signe Baumane, Vessel Wrestling by Lisa Yu, Time for Carla by Saray Dominguez, Carnival of Animals by Michaela Pavlatova, and Girls Night Out by Joanna Quinn. Representing the gents' side of the matter: Chirpy by John Goras (friends who have seen this say it's quite remarkable and could only be possible in the world of animation--let's hope), Roof Sex by PES, The Making of Gladiator by Duncan Beedie, Cosmic Honeymoon by Ondrej Rudavsky and, the above-mentioned How To Make Love to a Woman by Plympton.
