Celestial Navigations: The Short Films of Al Jarnow

1970 NR

This collection of 45 shorts from artist and filmmaker Al Jarnow, best known for his animations for PBS's Sesame Street, captures the evolution of his work from scrolling paintings to fascinating cinematic studies of motion, perspective and light. Using time-lapse, stop-motion and cel animation, Jarnow offers a fresh perspective on the ordinary and gives an unusual spin on everyday objects. Bonus material includes a documentary on the artist.
