Description

Details

The fine people over at Cinedoc-Paris Films Coop have brought us a spectacular DVD containing no less than 27 of the films of Alexandre Alexeieff. The DVD includes the astonishingly beautiful and critically acclaimed Night on Bald Mountain (1933), based on the music of Mussorgsky. Alexandre Alexeieff, one of the best-known early animators, was the developer of the pinscreen technique, in which each image is formed by the manipulation of a million or more obliquely lit pins.' - Trond Trondsen (www.mastersofcinema.org)

'Aside from Second Run's Love, Criterion's mighty releases (Ugetsu, Balthazar, Pickpocket, etc), and Artificial Eye's wondrous Van Gogh - my favourite release this year was this packed Alexeieff disc - showboating his incredible pinboard animation.' - Nick Wrigley -www.mastersofcinema.org

'Words are pointless to describe Alexandre Alexeieff & Claire Parker pinscreen animations, it's perhaps the most beautiful animations I ever saw. Alexeieff said 'Cinema will become an art when people can have it on their shelves and view it at their pleasure and discretion like a book or a record' he died in 1982 but Cinedoc made his wish come true.' -
