Director John Korty appeared at The Cinefamily last week, to screen his personal 35mm print of the rarely seen Ladd Company/Lucasfilm animated feature Twice Upon A Time (1983). His very informative Q & A with director Phil Lord (Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs) and Cinefamily programmer Alex McDonald explained how the film got funded, its troubled production, and why Korty may not return to animated films - until he's in a wheelchair. 

Korty had such a long explaination for why there are two versions of the film - one "G" rated, the other "PG" - that he wrote it out and handed printed explainations to the audience as they left the theatre. That has now been posted at The Cinefamily website

The entire Cinefamily interview with Korty is posted below. Well worth 40 minutes of your time.
