SPECIAL SCREENINGS: ANIMATED FILMS BY NORMAN MCLAREN

Information on the activity

April 26, 2020

As part of Printemps écossais

A highly inventive artist considered to be the father of Canadian animation, Scottish director Norman McLaren paid a great deal of attention to rhythm, movement, and sound, using a variety of techniques to make his films. His palette of colours and shapes, along with the abstraction and musicality setting the rhythm for the films presented here in these two screenings, invite viewers to explore his singular worlds, offering an artistic awakening and an introduction to experimentation.
This activity is a perfect opportunity to introduce younger and older generations to Norman McLaren’s legacy of animated films and landmark work through some of his more striking shorts, veritable masterpieces of animation!
