For the fifth year in a row Karl Cohen, world-renowned film scholar, hosts a night of animation he has assembled for the Film Society. This program explores how short films were used to rally the American public to war and then, later cool down our bloodlust and get us to rebuild a world ravaged by war.

These films provide a fascinating look at how Bugs Bunny, Donald Duck, Daffy and other animated stars persuaded us to recycle, pay our taxes to buy guns, guns and more guns and laugh at Hitler. Warning: Some of these films were designed to inflame our rage and will now be seen as deeply offensive.

Because the venue is new GPS systems won’t be able to find it properly
