Synopsis


Lye’s first direct (camera-less) animation combined popular Cuban dance music with hand-painted abstract designs. Screened in many cinemas in Britain, the film had a huge impact because of its novelty and because it divided audiences – some viewers loved it, others hated it. Colour was still a novelty and Lye’s direct painting on celluloid created brilliant colours. The film won festival awards, though some festivals had to invent a special category for this new style of animation.

Pierre-Emmanuel Lyet


Pierre-Emmanuel Lyet (1984) graduated from ENSAD majoring in animation. As a school film he directed his first movie Parade, produced by Doncvoilà in 2009. He works with them on various projects.
