UNE NUIT SUR LE MONT CHAUVE

by Alexandre ALEXEIEFF & Claire PARKER
1933 / 35mm / b&w / sound / 1S / 8' 24

“Alexeieff and Parker made their film using a pinscreen animation technique, arranging and rearranging thousands of pins so that, when illuminated, they produced variations in shadow from black to white. The effect resembles a mezzotint. This fantasy illustrating Mussorgsky’s music presents goblins, skeletons, and other fantastic creatures performing terrifying feats.” —R. Bruce Elder

Music by Modest Mussorgsky
