On Jan. 17, 2015, Mid Century Oregon Genius will present an evening of selected short films by the award winning independent filmmaker Homer Groening. Two time Oscar nominee Bill Plympton will introduce.
After the films, Lisa Groening will moderate a panel discussion about Homer Groening’s life and work. Panelists will include Tom Shrader, who worked with Homer Groening; Ted Mahar, friend of Homer Groening; Bill Plympton, who was encouraged by Homer Groening, and inspired by him.
(Anne notes: A surprise addition that night was Matt Groening. Matt and Lisa curated the films we saw, and took turns introducing them onstage, to the immense delight of a full house of newly created Homer Groening experts.)
Homer Groening was born in Main Centre, Saskatchewan, Canada, grew up in Albany, and based his career in Portland.
