About this Event
The Revenge of the Kinematograph Cameraman is a Russian 12-minute stop-action animation masterpiece that was directed and written by Władysław Starewicz and uses actual dried insect specimens (beetles, grasshoppers and dragonflies) as stop-motion puppets to portray all of the film’s characters. Starewicz’s silent short will be followed by a presentation about early experimental techniques and effects in silent film. Registration is required.
This program is presented in conjunction with the Gregg Museum of Art & Design's silent cinema celebration, a thematic series highlighting various genres of silent film from as early as 1897. A set of films will be highlighted through Aug. 27 and run on a loop during museum hours in the Black-Sanderson Gallery.
