Begone Dull Care
Directed by Norman McLaren and Evelyn Lambart • 1949 • Canada
In this extraordinary short animation, Evelyn Lambart and Norman McLaren painted colours, shapes, and transformations directly on to their filmstrip. The result is a vivid interpretation, in fluid lines and color, of jazz music played by the Oscar Peterson Trio.
