"The surrealists were fond of popular entertainments at their most deliriously irrational and artificial, finding in cinema, as Luis Buñuel once put it, “a marvelous and dangerous weapon . . . the finest instrument there is for expressing the world of dreams, of the emotions, of instinct.” Animation historian Jerry Beck returns to LACMA for an evening devoted to studio cartoons from the 1930s to the 1950s that delve into these subliminal territories with punch-drunk panache."
