Dharma Film Series presents ANOMALISA
Saturday, May 6, 7pm ~ How May I Help You Help Them? is the title of customer service industry guru Michael Stone's book, and the topic of his forthcoming keynote at a CS convention in Cincinnati. It is Michael, though, who seems to need help the most. Isolated amidst his encounters with a parade of fitfully sincere service workers and monotone settings, he will truly connect with only one person and hear one authentic voice: that of the wounded but distinctively alive Lisa. Anomalisa is an increasingly surreal love story for adults, rendered in a unique style of stop-action puppet photography where the seams and joints are not only visible but somehow part of the point. Artificial though they appear, Michael and Lisa move each other deeply, and us as well - particularly when things become awkwardly, touchingly sexual. Winner of every major animated film award including an Oscar and Golden Globe, Anomalisa is a one-of-a-kind work of art - antic, entertaining, uncomfortable, and ultimately revelatory in its no-strings account of our human need to connect. $10 at the door, with free refreshments and post-film discussion; $35/3 CEUs for mental health professionals
