TDA Animation premieres its animated short film “Sufferin’ Till You’re Straight” at the DC Shorts Film Festival (1317 F Street N.W.) Sept. 19-22. The film combines comedy and history through showcasing influential members of the LGBT community and spoofing social bigotry.

The film is part of the independent animated 10-part series “Hard Knock Life” created by David Scheve that focuses on 10 of life’s “hard knocks.” It features vocals from singer Essra Mohawk, former member of Frank Zappa’s The Mothers of Invention, and is an official selection of the 2013 Independent Film Festival.

Tickets are $40 for a festival package. Individual tickets are $12 in advance, $15 at the door. Show times vary. For more information, visit
