Joanna Quinn

Joanna Quinn, Dreams and Desires: Family Ties (2006)

Barbican Film celebrates International Animation Day with a special focus on the work of the multi-award-winning, internationally acclaimed British animator Joanna Quinn on 28 October.

Joanna’s work explores the politics of gender and the eccentricities of the human body through brilliant characterisation, superb draughtsmanship and wonderful animation technique. The screening will include Joanna’s 1987 debut film Girls Night Out, winner of 3 awards at the Annecy Film Festival, and follow-ups Body Beautiful (1990) and the multi-award-winning Dreams & Desires: Family Ties (2006). Other works include Elles (1992) a celebration of Toulouse Lautrec, the Oscar nominated Wife of Bath (1998), and her masterpiece Britannia (1993), a savage indictment of British Imperialism.

Joanna will discuss her films and upcoming projects with Jayne Pilling, Director of the British Animation Awards.

Find out more and book tickets via the Barbican website.
