Kensington Video has re-opened and is launching a film screening program. KPBS arts reporter Beth Accomando says prepare for experimental stop motion animation and a chance to meet the filmmaker at tonight’s event.

Filmmaker Eric Leiser has a personal history with Kensington Video. In fact, he credits owner Guy Hanford with supplementing his film education and introducing him to the foreign stop motion animators that have influenced his work.

ERIC LEISER: I was introduced actually to Jan Svankmajer and the Quay Brothers here. I would just repeatedly come back until I started making my own films and Guy was nice enough to give me a special like free rentals so it just added on to my cinephile obsession.

Leiser will share the fruits of this cinephile obsession for the opening night of Kensington Video’s new film series. Leiser will screen his feature Glitch in the Grid along with clips from his new film tonight at 7pm in the newly remodeled store.
