Animator Bill Plympton, an Oscar nominee and Cannes prize winner whose feature Hair High screened at the Indie Memphis Film Festival last month, will be in town tonight for a screening of his newest feature, Idiots & Angels, at Studio on the Square.

Indie Memphis describes the film:

In Bill Plympton's latest feature, Idiots & Angels, a selfish and morally bankrupt man, wakes up one morning with wings on his back. Even more troublesome than their embarrassing appearance is the wings' tendency to want to do good deeds. After much ridicule, he desperately tries to rid himself of the good wings, but eventually finds himself fighting those who view the wings as their ticket to fame and fortune. Is Angel's misguided soul capable of being rescued? 

Told through Plympton's trademark animation style Idiots and Angels is a dark comedy about a man's battle for his soul

The Idiots & Angels screening is at 7:30 p.m. tonight. Admission is $5 or free to Indie Memphis members or Memphis College of Art students. Plympton will conduct a Q&A after the screening.

Plympton will also lecture at the Memphis College of Art tomorrow night at 7 p.m. The lecture is free and open to the public and is being held at Callicott Auditorium.
