An Evening of Animated Shorts by Ladislaw Starewicz

Ladislaw Starewicz was born in Moscow in 1882, and at an early age became fascinated with both entomology and filmmaking. He initially wanted to film stag beetles fighting, but the beetles wouldn't comply under lights. This led Starewicz to begin creating short stop motion animated films ("puppet films," as he called them), utilizing dead insects. He later moved on to realistic animal puppets and other subjects, sometimes incorporating rear-projected real actors. His works range from grotesque, beautiful, strange and technically impressive, even by today's standards. We'll present a sampling of this "father of stop motion animation," including "The Cameraman's Revenge" and a number of others!
