Norman McLaren

A Chairy Tale

Another live-action film directed by Norman McLaren and animated by Evelyn Lambart, A CHAIRY TALE from 1957 is part pixilation, part reminiscent of puppet animation. The film tells the story of a man who tries to sit down on a chair that repeatedly dodges his attempts. Reminiscent of silent-film era slapstick, this short was screened at our festival in 1958, and was nominated in the category “Short Subject (Live Action)” at the Oscars that same year.
