Berthold Bartosch, L'Idee. PAL DVD. Re:Voir release. The famous film based on woodcuts by Masereel; music by Arthur Honegger, with an electronic instrument by Martenot. A major milestone in animation history. Bartosch's only surviving film was completed single-handedly in Paris in 1932. Almost 45000 frames were animated on four different levels simultaneously, often with as many as 18 superimpositions made in the camera. "(...) Bartosch showed that animation could be POETIC... It was Bartosch who first dared to give animation the dimension of a great art, trusting it to voice his pain, to lay bare his heart, to tell of his hope for a better future - which he never saw." - Alexander Alexeieff and Claire Parker, 1969. $35 private home use. Institutions, $200. Email to order
