Owen Suskind was a boy of considerable promise, until he developed autism at the age of 3. As Owen withdrew into his silent state, his parents almost lost hope that he find some way to interact with his world in some meaningful way. However, that way was found through animated films, especially those of the Walt Disney Company, which provided Owen a way to understand the world through its stories to the point of creating his own.

Studying landscape in cinema isn't quite new; it'd be hard to imagine Woody Allen without New York, or the French New Wave without Paris. But the focus on live-action cinema leaves a significant gap in studying animated films.

Spanish film pioneer Segundo de Chomón spent most of his influential career associated with Pathé Laboratories. Chomón joined the company in 1901 and set up a laboratory for adding color to film in Barcelona. He started directing newsreels the following year. Chomón's innovations include the development of several camera tricks, including single-frame techniques, optical dissolves, and complicated traveling shots. In 1902, Chomón successfully combined live-action with miniatures in the short Choque de Trenes/Collision of Trains. In 1905, he was the first Spanish filmmaker to use stop-motion techniques in Eclipse de Sol/Eclipse of the Sun. Toward the end of 1905, Chomón relocated to Paris to direct over 100 short films for Pathé; he also shared his techniques with other directors. He first used the traveling shot (the first time it was ever used) in a scene for La Vie et la Passion de Notre Seigneur Jesus Christ/The Life and Passion of Jesus Christ (1907), which was directed by Ferdinand Zecca and Lucien Nonguet. Chomón accomplished the shot by devising a special skating device, and perfected the special shot while filming Cabiria for Italian director Giovanni Pastrone in 1914. In 1909, Chomón was among the first to use silhouettes in one of the first animated films, the surreal Une Excursion Incoherente/Traveler's Nightmare. Chomón returned to Barcelona in 1910 and worked closely with Juan Fuster to create a series of short fiction films. In 1911, he produced a series of travel documentaries for Pathé and later in the year founded Ibérico, his own production company (he released his films through Pathé). Chomón moved to Italy in 1912 and worked as a cinematographer and special effects technician with the Italia Film company, for whom Chomón also directed several animated shorts. Chomón co-invented a two-tone color process in the 1920s with Swiss engineer Ernest Zollinger. The pair later exhibited two color films at various science expos. Chomón died of illness in Paris in 1929 shortly after returning from Morocco where he was shooting color footage.

Painted Animation

This collection of thirteen animated films covers thirty years of experiments with form, pictorial representation and playful storytelling. One name is common to them all: Georges Schwizgebel, one of the most influential and respected directors of contemporary animation. The Swiss filmmaker's style is very much his own: a few deft brushstrokes suffice to depict a character, create an atmosphere or construct a world.

"The two DVDs which we present to cinema lovers, did not have enough room to contain all the outstanding Polish animated films of the last six decades, nor present all the makers worthy of attention. We do hope, however, that the selection is representative enough to let those viewers, who are not very well familiar with the history of Polish animation, get to know it better, while to its enthusiasts, it will bring back almost thirty of its gems." - Marcin Gizycki

There hardly is a time in world history more politically polarized than the 20th century, which divided the globe in two camps — capitalism and communism — divided at the height of the divergence by the infamous Iron Curtain. The Cold War was very much a war of ideologies and each side relied heavily on the ideological unity of its people, often employing the power of the visual arts — graphic design, animation, illustration — to drive its message home. From 1924 to perestroika the USSR produced 41 animated propaganda films. Their target was the new nation and their goal was to win over the hearts and minds of the Soviet people.
