Animation and experimental film forms have unlimited artistic possibilities. Teaching non-fiction animation allows for students to create documentary films that dive into sensitive personal and political topics, such as interviewing a migrant worker, or someone who is seeking asylum, a minor, or a person who can not for some reason speak openly and freely without risk, allowing for them express their concerns but not be visually identifiable. How can teaching animation encourage film students to take artistic risks and to address urgent global issues? Animation and experimental forms broaden the range of storytelling possibilities.
