Example text

Breer: My earliest paintings in Paris were influenced by early Vasarelynot by what got to be called "op art," but by his earlier paintings, which were very simple and much less systematic than the later op works. By the time I was making films, I wasn't interested in Vasarely, though maybe there's some residue. The movement show at Denise René Gallery opened in 1955. And to go along with it, Pontus Hulten was supposed to organize a film show. He's an art historian and until recently was the director of the Beauborg Art Museum in Paris.

I talked with Breer in January and February 1985. <><><><><><><><><><><><> MacDonald: One influence that seems clear in your first films, Form Phases I and Form Phases II is Emile Cohl. Breer: I hadn't seen Cohl's films at that point. After I did A Man and His Dog Out for Air, Noel Burch, who was also in Paris at that time, asked me if I'd seen Cohl. When I said no, he took me over to the Cinematheque, and we saw Cohl's films there. MacDonald: The similarity I see is the idea of animation being primarily about metamorphosis, rather than storytelling.

But a nicer way to think of it is to see the figurative and narrative elements in my films as establishing norms from which to depart. MacDonald: Image by Images is the earliest of your films where you use actual photographed images of reality. Your hand appears in that film, and part of a face. Breer: And the eyeglasses, right. At a flea market one time we walked by a blanket on which this old ladyshe must have been a widowwas selling what looked to be parts of her husband. She had his teeth and his glasses and other parts of him out on this blanket.
