The Painted Princess (1994) [Short]

USA (MIFF 1995 , Animation)
Director: Pooh Gaye

Writing last year for The Village Voice Ellen Cohn described Pooh Kaye adding " paint to her hyperactive interactive cast—animating swirls and strokes of gorgeous gut-grabbing colour with wit and style to turn any mere me-and-my-easel painter green*

A mixture of live dance gestures and language combined with animation gives new meaning to Velazquez's formal court portrait Las Meninas.
