The Tournées Film Festival will continue with “Tales of the Night” at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 19, in Billingsly Student Center’s Phelps Theater.
This collection of six marvelous, visually bold fairy tales is rendered in a “shadow puppet style,” with silhouetted characters set against gorgeously colored, Day-Glo backgrounds. Each episode introduces a host of amazing creations: werewolves, giant bees, dragons, sorcerers, talking horses, rival kings. And each, in telling the tale of how a young man overcomes obstacles to win the hand of a princess, takes a decidedly wry, ironic turn.
Admission is free and refreshments will be provided.
