Synopsis

Created using outtakes—tests—that were done to make the film A Chairy Tale (1957) by master of animation Norman McLaren, Flocons is a black-and-white short set to the music of Tchaikovsky and featuring none other than Canadian filmmaker Claude Jutra, who plays a character imprisoned in the celluloid on which McLaren paints directly. Flocons aims to celebrate the 100th anniversary, in 2014, of Norman McLaren’s birth.

‘Inspiring! To celebrate the 100th anniversary of McLaren’s birth, the young filmmaker made a short film that would not put to shame the master and the inventif acting of Claude Jutra.’ – Mario Cloutier, La Presse +

Director’s Statement

While I was working on the research for the film JUTRA , I was astonished to find a unfinished film by Norman McLaren and Claude Jutra that seems to have been shot at the same time as A Chairy Tale .
