Library of Congress Picks ‘Quasi’For Preservation

The 1975 film “Quasi at the Quackadero” helped prompt the American Film Institute years ago to name my friend Sally Cruikshank as one of AFI’s first five lifetime achievement winners for independent filmmaking. 

Now I’m thrilled to learn that that the Library of Congress has just included “Quasi” on its annual list of 25 films so distinctive as to qualify for preservation under the nation’s cultural heritage program.

Details are here on her website Fun on Mars, which includes descriptions of her films and how to find them.  Included also are links to her blog and a tribute to her first boss, who let her experiment with a new style of animation upon graduation from Smith College.  

Hooray for Sally! And thanks for spreading so much “Fun on Earth!!”
