Distinguished SVA alumnus and frequent Academy Award nominee Bill Plympton (1969 Media Arts) is back with a new animated feature. Hair High tells the story of Cherri and Spud, a 1950s-era teen couple who get killed on prom night and return as outrageous zombies, and features the celebrity voice talents of David Carradine, Beverly D’Angelo, Dermot Mulroney, Martha Plimpton and Sarah Silverman. The film is having a run of premiere screenings at the Two Boots Pioneer Theater, 155 East Third Street, October 18 – 25, as part of a month-long series of Halloween-appropriate films.
Plympton himself will be making an appearance at the 9pm screening on Wednesday, October 18, and will be giving away an original drawing to every attendee. Tickets can be purchased in advance through the Two Boots Pioneer Theater’s Web site.
