Me, Myself, and I 

When: Wed., Aug. 22, 1 p.m. 2012
Price: Free

A trio of shorts focusing on stories of self highlight this all-ages event. First up is 2007's Max's Words, an adaptation of a children's book about a boy who responds to his brothers' refusal to share their collections of stamps and coins by creating his own collection of words. Next is the Oscar-nominated 1975 Canadian short Monsieur Pointu, in which Quebec fiddler Paul Cormier performs his music as his fiddle and other objects take on a life of their own. Last is the Emmy-nominated 1988 short Abel's Island, based on the Newbery Honor book by renowned cartoonist William Steig. It's the tale of an aristocratic mouse, voiced by Tim Curry, who finds himself swept out to a remote island where he must survive predators, the elements and his isolation. The tale is extremely existential for a children's story, but it has a happy ending. The three shorts screen at the museum's East Building Auditorium; the event is free, but a ticket from the box office is required. —Zack Smith
