Magic Canvas

FOOTAGE number
Magic Canvas
1948 AD (C20th AD)

An animated quest for freedom. After the war years in 1948 the Halas and Batchelor animation studio made this beautifully fluid experiment in animation, a remarkable achievement before computers were born. The film shows how the union of the material and spiritual natures of man can lead to fulfilment. John Halas with the Hungarian designer Peter Foldes produced and directed Magic Canvas with an original score by Matyas Sieber
