McLaren Animation 2

  • 80 mins

More of Britain’s animated gems are presented for your viewing pleasure. All are competing for the prestigious McLaren Award, recognising the internationally treasured Norman McLaren whose passion for movement drove his fifty-year career as an innovator of animated film. Whilst our first programme of films could be said to focus on the loner, this collection has relationships at its heart; whether with a loved one or our relationship with the universe. Not suitable for younger children.
