CALGARY – “The ultimate futuristic fantasy epic!” So says the trailer to Ralph Bakshi’s 1977 classic, Wizards. And while that same year’s Star Wars may have won that particular battle, Wizards stands as a cult classic in its own right, telling the tale of a post-apocalyptic world where the forces of good and magic stand up to a powerful evil who has rediscovered the long-lost powers of propaganda, technology and war. Calgary’s own 90.9FM CJSW’s The Nocturntable is teaming up with Twinbat Sticker Co., BeatRoute and the Quickdraw Animation Society’s GIRAF animation festival to present a 40th anniversary screening of this psychedelic sci-fi vision, from a master of adult animation, Ralph Bakshi (Fritz the Cat, Lord of the Rings, American Pop). Even better, proceeds from the ticket sales go to support the CJSW Funding Drive.
