Radioactive Twin Sorcerers Battle in Animated Post-Apocalyptic Sci-Fi Adventure
Wed April 1
2009, 7:00 & 9:00

The radiation fallout from a past nuclear war has caused the mutation of humans into races of elves, dwarves, fairies, and the like when a wizard bent on world domination discovers he can employ the propaganda of Adolf Hitler to achieve his goals. He is opposed by his twin brother, the proverbial white sheep of the family, who tries to use his gifts for good. In his 1977 animated feature, Ralph Bakshi (Fritz the Cat, Heavy Traffic) superimposed animations on archival footage in a technique that may not seem refined to today's audiences but still packs an emotional wallop.
