"Norman McLaren Retrospective" by Amir Avni

A special 100 year anniversary retrospective Amir Avni curated about influential Canadian animator Norman McLaren for TAAFI 2014. For this retrospective, Amir shot new interviews with NFB veterans Kaj Pindal, Gerald Potterton and Bob Verrall who knew and worked with McLaren. Their insights allow us to have a personal connection with McLaren while also providing a deeper understanding about his films.

Jane Gutteridge of the NFB helped Amir with access to the classic films and gaining the permission to have them online as part of the program.
