    CA – An Evening with Ralph Bakshi

    bakshi

    Press Release:

    USC Visions and Voices: The Arts and Humanities Initiative and the USC School of Cinematic Arts, in conjunction with the American Cinematheque, invite you and a guest to attend An Evening with Ralph Bakshi and Fritz the Cat (1972) at 7:00 P.M. on Thursday, March 26th, 2015

    A screening of the groundbreaking X-rated animated feature Fritz the Cat will be followed by a discussion with Ralph Bakshi about his exceptional career.

    Hosted by SCA Director of Programming Alessandro Ago.

    FREE ADMISSION. OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. RSVPs REQUIRED.
    Bakshi Productions will sell artwork before and after the event in the George Lucas Building Lobby.

    About Fritz the Cat (1972)

    Sex-obsessed tomcat Fritz drops out of NYU and embraces every new experience that crosses his path, including easy sex and drugs. But Fritz ends up holding the dynamite that will detonate the ultimate 1960s statement when he joins a group of radical hippies. Based on underground comic-book artist Robert Crumb’s revolutionary character, Fritz the Cat became the first X-rated cartoon.

    Written & Directed by Ralph Bakshi. Produced by Steve Krantz.
    Provided courtesy of Park Circus. Rated X. Running time: 78 minutes.

    About Ralph Bakshi

    Blasted into public consciousness – and controversy – by the first X-rated cartoon, FRITZ THE CAT (1972), legendary writer-director-producer Ralph Bakshi’s career in animation spans an astounding 50 years. He channeled the freewheeling spirit of underground comics in such films as HEAVY TRAFFIC (1973) and COONSKIN (1975), battling protests and censors to open the doors to cartoons with adult situations. He tapped further into the zeitgeist with WIZARDS (1977) and THE LORD OF THE RINGS (1978), catching the mid-70s wave of interest in sci-fi and fantasy that broke with STAR WARS. Bakshi’s work was adventurous visually as well as thematically; RINGS and AMERICAN POP (1981) are landmarks of rotoscoping, a type of animation where live-action footage is traced onto cels.

    While these features solidified Bakshi’s stake in animation history, he has never been content to rest on his laurels. He re-invented Saturday morning cartoons with “The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse,” a show that proved to be a precursor for irreverent fare such as “The Ren & Stimpy Show.” And in the latest turn to a brilliant career, Bakshi has taken up the paintbrush; his work can be viewed at www.ralphbakshi.com.
