A SNEAK PREVIEW OF A FACETS EXCLUSIVE!
THE LAWRENCE JORDAN ALBUM
$5 admission Free for Facets members
"Larry Jordan's animated films are among the most beautiful short films ever made...his content is subtle, his technique is perfect, his personal style unmistakable" -Jonas Mekas, San Francisco Cinematheque
"While these film collages link together a myriad of symbolic forms in new combination, the smooth, lyrical progression of the work results in a powerful sense of wholeness and totality" -San Francisco Chronicle
Lawrence Jordan's surreal animations and quirky live action shorts create an amazing world of joy and wonder. A master of cut out animation, he combines 19th century engraving, modern imagery, and common symbols and constructs dream like narratives. We will be screening seven short films including Rime of the Ancient Mariner, an interpretation of Samuel Taylor Coleridge's classic poem narrated by Orson Welles.
Directed by Lawrence Jordan, U.S.A., 1957-2007, DVD, 115 mins.
