Poster for Cheatin


Director: Bill Plympton Run Time: 85 min. Format: Digital Rating: NR Release Year: 2012

One night only! New York independent animator Bill Plympton joins Nitehawk in presenting his new animated feature, Cheatin’, that will be shown as a “work in progress.”

In a fateful bumper car collision, Jake and Ella meet and become the most loving couple in the long history of Romance.  But when a scheming “other” woman drives a wedge of jealousy into their perfect courtship, insecurity and hatred spell out an untimely fate.  With only the help of a disgraced magician and his forbidden “soul machine”, Ella takes the form of Jake’s numerous lovers, desperately fighting through malfunction and deceit as they try to reclaim their destiny.

This is the rare chance to watch Bill Plympton’s tenth feature film, Cheatin, as a work-in-progress animated feature and to fill-out feedback response cards. Plympton will also be in-house to do an introduction to the film and a post-screening Q&A.
