Summary
  • (Night on Bald Mountain) In this renowned illustration of Modest Moussorgsky's tone poem, goblins, skeletons and other fantastic creatures perform outlandish three-dimensional effects. Alexeieff later said that the images existed in his mind for some 14 years before he and Claire Parker invented the pinboard which gave the chiaroscuro textures he desired. Animator Norman McLaren listed the film "first and foremost" among the animated films he most admired and liked. "Above all, it is the quality of Alexeieff's imagination that stirs me profoundly," McLaren said
  • (Alexeieff at the Pinboard) In their Paris studio, the Russian-born artist and filmmaker, Alexander Alexeieff, and his American wife, Claire Parker, show and explain how they create pictures on the instrument they invented (l'écran d'épingles), which they first translated into English as the pinboard, and later called the pinscreen
  • (The Nose) Fantastic pictures animated on the pinboard capture without words the scene and spirit of Nicolai Gogol's celebrated short story set in 19th century Russia. This best known of the Alexeieff & Parker films, critics have written, is "full of art and poetry" and "should be seen more than once for a full awareness of its artistry."
