Tito on Ice celebrated its Middle East Premiere at the Beirut Animated 4 film festival October 18, 2015, in attendance of directors Helena Ahonen and Max Andersson. The event, which took place at the classic Metropolis cinema in central district Ashrafieh, included an exhibition of the film sets and a master class by Max.
Bringing more trash to a city which is in the middle of a garbage crisis.
Every version of this exhibition is modified to fit the specific character of the location. This one is literally split up on separate tables, but still connected somehow.
Installation complete. Beirut is hot in October, air condition temporarily turned off.
Local visitors are speechless.
