Fishtank Fantasy by Alison Chin
Fish Tank Fantasy is a light hearted stop motion animation about a fish frustrated with his current life in the bowl. An epiphany he has, which results from his own interpretation of a famous inspirational philosophy, leads him to a place he hopes will bring him more happiness.
SEED by Ben Richardson & Daniel Bird
An egg and an apple build competing broadcast towers that vie for the attention of a transistor radio. With its complex characterization and narrative of animal evolution, competition and reproduction, SEED is a beautiful and sinister stop-motion story about the struggle to survive.
Old Derick by James Kwan
An old man-thing tries to take on the city.
About Sternberg Park:
This park honors Frances Hamburger Sternberg (1920-1990), a New York native and active Brooklyn community member who contributed extensively to the social and political life of the Greenpoint and Williamsburg neighborhoods. Her life of philanthropy included chairing the Friends of Lindsay Park (this park’s previous name) Committee.
