As part of the "Best of The Ottawa Animation Festival 2004" at BAMcinematek on March 30, Jennifer Shiman’s "The Shining in 30 Seconds, Re-Enacted by Bunnies" will be screened.

In Shiman’s exceedingly short movie, she deftly spoofs the plot of Stanley Kubrick’s cult-classic film and our own fear upon first watching it in 1980. Somehow a bunny just isn’t as terrorizing as an ax-wielding Jack Nicholson reducing a bathroom door to splinters with the tongue-in-cheek announcement, "Heeere’s Johnny!" (See the wife, Wendy bunny, quivering at left.)

The films, which were culled from 111 that were screened in the competition held Sept. 22-26, 2004 in Ottawa, Ontario, will be shown at 6:50 pm and 9:15 pm at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (30 Lafayette Ave. at Ashland Place in Fort Greene). The animation is showcased in a variety of forms: music videos, animated shorts, TV series and commercials, Internet series and more.

Tickets are $10. For more information, visit or call (718) 636-4100.
