Film Series: Norman McLaren’s Animated Shorts

1940-1971. Canada. Dir: McLaren and collaborators. Animated. Approx. 75 min.

 

An unsung pioneer of animation whose astonishing work was lauded by Picasso as “finally something new,” McLaren experimented widely with the filmic medium, including drawn-on-film animation, abstract cinema, and pixilation (stop-motion with humans) – all represented in this 35mm retrospective.
