Director: Norman McLaren
Made without commentary or dialogue, this film is a simple ballet of a youth and a kitchen chair. The ensuing struggle, first for mastery and then for understanding forms the action of the film. The technique is a modified form of the "pixillation" animation formerly used in NcLaren's Neighbours.See also...
