Steps in Motion: A North Side Animation
Sunday, August 13 at 3:00 pm
Neighbors on the Northside came together to bring a neglected greenway to life in an animated film! Come see animated organic forms grow up the steps to lead the viewer and walker up, into, and through nature to the accompaniment of the music of Joel Pace. Produced and directed by Allegheny City Central neighbors Catherine Drabkin and Pahl Hluchan, this short film promotes a neglected urban green space that connects our neighborhood and Perry Hilltop. In it, members of the community collaborate to clean up the steps, create a work of art, and animate it to celebrate an underappreciated link to nature and to the greater Northside community.
