"Like all stop-motion animation, the films retain a supernatural veracity in comparison to digital animation..."
This unique DVD collection showcases the one-of-a-kind animation of internationally acclaimed artist Alexandre Alexeieff and his wife and collaborator, Claire Parker. In addition to Alexeieff and Parker's most important films, such as their classic interpretation of Mussorgsky's A Night on Bald Mountain, this DVD includes rare and important documentaries about their work. Over 30 films are featured, including Alexeieff's animations and the couple's stop-motion animated advertisements made for French television, plus photographs of Alexeieff's still artworks.
