Robert Breer (rushes de Hiroshima vive le cinéma)
By André S. Labarthe, France / 1966 / 56' / colour / English (French subtitles)
Rushes restored and a digital copy made by the Cinémathèque française

The painter and sculptor Robert Breer (1926-2011) was interested in the movement and transformation of form and from 1952 onwards made frame by frame animation films, renewing with the inventive tradition of animation drawing of Emile Cohl, which had been pushed into the background by the hegemonic production of the Disney studios. He also built strange moving sculptures, including the "rugs" that he shows here to Annette Michelson in a conversation in front of the camera. In an interview in French a little while earlier, he explained to André S. Labarthe his very personal way of working.
