An animator currently directing her own independent film, with the help of 350 artists from 35 countries around the world, will give a free public lecture at Kapiʻolani Community College on April 19, 7–9 p.m. in the ʻŌhiʻa Auditorium. Artist Cinzia Angelini will discuss her experiences, challenges, tips and tricks in “The Making of Mila.”

Mila is a high-quality computer generated short film about a little girl whose life takes an unexpected turn during World War II. The hundreds of artists involved are united by a common goal of creating socially relevant animation and have volunteered their time and talent under one “virtual roof.”

UNICEF Italy says it supports Mila “…for the powerful universal language conceived by artists from around the world; for the excellent quality of the work, and above all, because the story of this little girl from Trento, who survived the bombings of World War II, represents all those children who across the ages and around the planet, are in danger.”

Angelini’s other projects include BaltoPrince of EgyptEldoradoSpiritSinbadSpiderman 2Open SeasonMeet the RobinsonsBoltThe Minions Movie and Despicable Me 3. She also worked on the Despicable Me Minion Mayhem theme park project for Universal Studios.
