The Animation of Alexeïeff DVD

The Animation of Alexeieff DVD cover

A new DVD release of interest from Facets The Animation of Alexeïeff  featuring  the pinscreen films of Alexeïeff and his wife Claire Parker, including such famed shorts as Night on Bare Mountain (1933) and The Nose (1963), along with commercials and documentaries, including The Pinscreen (Norman McLaren, 1973), as well as Jacques Droulin’s Mindscape, a National Film Board of Canada film made using Alexeïeff and Parker’s pinscreen (which ended up at the NFB). The set, in English and French, appears to be the same as now out-of-print ones previously available in the UK (Animation Works of Alexander Alexeieff ) and France (Le cinéma épinglé), which are both now out-of-print.
