Details

The Idea was animated on sheets of glass with washtinted blacks and with soap. Some 100-watt lightbulbs obliquely lighted Bartosch's work-bench from below, and the light became irridescent in the soap, giving some marevellous effects. One can hardly hardly imagine how small his studio was - about 10 x 12 feet. Half the space was filled by the panes of glass which were layered into a sort of work-bench. Bartosch showed that animation could be POETIC... It was Bartosch who first dared to give animation the dimension of a great art, trusting it to voice his pain, to lay bare his heart, to tell of his hope for a better future - which he never saw.' - Alexander Alexeieff and Claire Parker, 1969 Bartosch's only surviving film was made single-handely in Paris in 1932. Almost 45000 frames were animated on four different levels simultaneously, often with as many as 18 superimpositions made in the camera. Based on woodcuts by Frans Masereel, music by Arthur Honegger All rights of the producer and of the owner of the work are reserved.
