Two time Academy Award winner,
Frederic Back is a Canadian master animator with few equals.
For many years, his talent was given full flight under the
auspices of Hubert Tison’s legendary Radio Canada
Vibrant colouring and elegant
artwork are visual hallmarks of his style. His parallel
career as a book illustrator is another obvious influence
on the look of his films while his unwaivering commitment
to environmental issues provide the spark that ignites the
firm-but-gentle passion that is deeply embedded in the DNA
of his work.
Back’s ability to
capture, recreate and animate the very essence of a natural
environment is absolutely uncanny. There is more –
much much more – to this than simply animating landscapes.
He is one of the finest animators of flowing water, can
animate ‘invisible’ wind and capture the stillness
and pure majesty of mother nature like no other animator.
In this exploding torrent of creative intensity, more than 10,000
drawings are utilised to give us a ring-side seat at the creation
of the world.
A discarded but once much-loved rocking chair becomes the star
attraction at a new museum of modern art.
The Man Who
Legendary Academy Award winning film narrated by Christopher
Plummer, tells how a good and simple man with an ear for the
language of the earth, makes a forest grow in what was a god-forsaken,
This sumptuous film reveals much about the St. Lawrence. Not
only its history but also the countless treasures it harbours
and the people who have garnered a living along its shores and
who continue to do so.
