Olhar de Cinema is happy to present a program of seven restored films by Norman McLaren, a brilliant Scottish-Canadian animator who made much of his work for Canada’s National Film Board. The program contains musical delights like Begone Dull Care, A Chairy Tale and Neighbors that assay hand-drawn and stop-motion images in rhythm with upbeat jazz scores. Its films touch on several subjects – some violent, some potentially tragic – with all the works committed to turning life into a lively dance.
