Caroline Leaf & Mary Beams
Caroline Leaf's animated work springs from her expert storytelling and pioneering animation techniques. One significant contribution to filmmaking is her technique of manipulating sand on a light-box, which she began as a student at Harvard. She later worked as an animator and director at the National Film Board of Canada. Her film The street garnered an Academy Award nomination in 1976. On this episode, she screens the remarkable The owl who married a goose: an Eskimo legend and parts of The street and The metamorphosis of Mr. Samsa which were works-in-progress at the time. Mary Beams' hand-drawn films carry themes of memory, erotic fantasy and feminism. She taught animation at Harvard from 1972 to 1977, and by 1988, she was a partner in Media Ink, Inc., with a weekly animated political spot on NBC's Sunday Today show. She has also taught at the University of South Florida and Northern Illinois University. Here, she screens The tub, Solo film, Going home sketch-book, Piano rub, and her work-in-progress, Quilt film.
