Black Maria Film Festival Introduction

Henrietta Bulkowski – Animation

15 min. by Rachel Johnson, Los Angeles, CA.

A determined young woman, crippled with a severe hunchback, will stop at nothing to fulfill her dream of seeing the world. This is the story of how she finds happiness.

Voice – Narrative

10 min. by Takeshi Kushida, Tokyo, Japan

The Elephant’s Song – Animation

8 min. by Lynn Tomlinson, Owings Mills, MD

The Elephant’s Song tells the true and tragic tale of Old Bet, the first circus elephant in America, as recounted in song by her friend, an old farm dog. Their story is portrayed in colorful, handcrafted animation, created frame by frame with clay-on-glass animation, where oil-based modeling clay is spread thinly on a glass sheet and moved frame-by-frame like a moving finger painting. Old Bet the elephant sings the choruses, which are animated with oil pastel on video frames printed from archival films, paintings, and photographs.

Woody’s Order – Documentary

16 min. by Seth Kramer, Red Hook, NY, written and performed by Ann Talman, NY, NY.

Woody’s Order! is a film based on a one-woman show written and performed by actress Ann Talman. Family legend has it that Ann was “ordered” into this world in 1956 by Woody, her then eight-year-old brother with severe cerebral palsy.  Ann’s raison d’être was to care for Woody if and when their parents could not.  At the time, Woody was not expected to live past twelve.  Ann’s performance details her struggles to understand her brother’s disorder, build a career, and even sustain her sanity while fulfilling her sacred obligations.  Ann’s performance has played to overwhelming acclaim in New York, Los Angeles, and Pittsburgh, the Talmans’ hometown.
