Synopsis

One of the great pioneering creative and commercial forces in British animation, Joy Batchelor’s work ranged from witty post-war public service films to the classic BAFTA-nominated feature animation Animal Farm. Curated by her daughter Vivien Halas, this special event celebrates the centenary of Batchelor’s birth, including rarely-seen clips alongside an in-depth overview of her professional career running a creative studio, alongside a more personal perspective on her life as a mother.

Panel discussion includes animation programmer and author Clare Kitson, BFI Curator Jez Stewart and Batchelor’s daughter Vivien Halas. Chaired by film critic Brian Sibley.
