For the past 20 years, Priestley has pushed the envelope of animation concept and technique to create experimental animated films. Named the “Queen of Independent Animation” by animator Bill Plympton, Priestley makes unique and humanistic work involving themes of gender, love, aging, human rights, and even candy. Join her for a lecture and screening of works that include her newest film, Andaluz, a collaboration with Karen Aqua in which beautifully drawn characters swoon in a colorful tribute to the culture and life of southern Spain.
