The acute viewpoint of Clyde and Henry

Saturday 23th February / 16.30 h. La Llotja, Hall Leandre Cristòfol


Animac receives the Canadian creative duo formed by Chris Lavis and Maciek Szczerbowski in a lecture that will explore their past, present and future as stop motion animators ‒ and their twisted, experimental style. In 1997, they founded their animation studio in Montreal ‒ Clyde Henry Productions, specialized in puppet animation ‒ and went down in history with their renowned stop motion short film Madame Tutli-Putli (2007), nominated for an Oscar. Impressed by their work, Spike Jonze commissioned them with the short film Higglety Pigglety Pop! or There Must Be More to Life (2010), an adaptation of the homonymous short story by Maurice Sendak inspired by his pet dog Jannie and played by Meryl Streep. After their experimental stereoscopic piece Cochemare (2013) and their collaboration with filmmaker Guy Maddin, Chris and Maciek teamed up with Felix & Paul Studios and now explore stop motion animation with a new immersive language: virtual reality. Gymnasia is their latest experimental short film still in production, a vivid nightmare starring spooky puppets inhabiting an abandoned gym.
