KI Alumni Return to the Silver Screen

Kinetic Imaging alumni Allison Zigadlo (BFA ’17) and Triet Le (BFA ’17) premiered their latest collaborative animation at the Pocahontas Reframed: Native American Storytellers Film Festival. The animated short, featuring a dancing girl who sweeps away dark clouds, served as the introduction to the festival on Nov. 17 at the Byrd Theatre.

In March 2017, at the 25th French Film Festival, Zigadlo and Le unveiled their first 15-second short—a tribute to director Jacques Perrin and composer Bruno Coulais, drawn entirely in charcoal. The request came to them through festival director Peter Kirkpatrick, during their internship at the annual event. Zigadlo and Le were given even more creative freedom for Pocahontas Reframed after the success of their first opening short.
