Retrospective: Animating Reality

Les journaux de Lipsett Theodore Ushev

Film index A to Z

Framed as a secret diary (narrated by Xavier Dolan), this film by the prolific Theodore Ushev recounts the descent into the hell of mental illness experienced by the acclaimed experimental filmmaker Arthur Lipsett. After a series of tense moving tableaux, the film re-appropriates images and sounds from Lipsett’s work, resulting in a most unforgettable tribute.

Presented in collaboration with the Sommets du cinéma d'animation, the Cinémathèque québécoise, the Département d'histoire de l'art et d'études cinématographiques de l'Université de Montréal and the Observatoire du cinéma au Québec
