Norman McLaren

Dots

Today, we are kicking off our new series OBERHAUSEN REVISITED. Our Festival History in Shorts, presenting films from our almost 70 years long festival history that we have not previously shared online. Our very first find is Norman McLaren's DOTS, which was screened as part of the programme "International Avant-garde" in 1954, our first festival year. In this award-winning film, McLaren employs a fascinating technique of "painted" synthetic sound production that was also used in his film LOOP, and thoroughly elaborated on in PEN POINT PERCUSSION; both of which we screened alongside this film.
