Infinitely Curious: Animation – From motion to emotion | 14.04.2024

Are you about 15+ or 40+ and still watching animated PG movies by yourself? Do all your friends and family make fun of you for watching animated films like Finding Nemo or Shrek? Well then, you’re not alone. In society today, anyone of a certain age is told to watch anything rated for more mature audiences, leading them to leave a sense of childhood behind. For those who watch PG movies, they are just considered childish and simple. In reality, some people just enjoy something that is a change of pace from all the vulgar language, blood, guns, drugs, and sexual content. They have fun watching something appealing and enjoyable that looks beautiful whenever you look at it. But children also refuse to watch cartoons to prove that they have grown up losing a precious part of their carefree childhood.

Tune in on Sunday 14 April 2024 at 11:00 am (Athens time) to Voice of Greece radio and ”Infinitely Curious”, VoG’s English-languare radio show with Katerina Batzaki, and dive into the psychology of animation.

Learn from Swiss editorial cartoonist Patrick Chappatte why humble cartoons can be powerful and illuminate serious issues and bring the most unlikely people together.
Listen to animator of hit Disney shows like Phineas and Ferb and Hercules, Aliki Theofilopoulos, how she draws inspiration from her own childhood by being fully present in the human experience, why motion brings so much emotion and why cartoons can be so attractive and wise no matter how old we are.
