The Animated World of Maureen Selwood

In Maureen Selwood's Hail Mary (1999) flicker effects animate objects such as a chair, and purgatory is illustrated by a forest of thumbtacks. And Flying Circus: An Imagined Memoir (1995) presents circus figures in a variety of styles. But Selwood takes a wrong turn in appropriating sounds and images from Robert Aldrich's noir masterpiece Kiss Me Deadly for Mistaken Identity (2001). Her white-on-black line drawings clash with and trivialize the nightmarish original, and though her voice-over for Hammer's partner Velma adds a woman's point of view, the results are unoriginal. Also showing is Selwood's new Power Point presentation, Drawing Lessons. 55 min.
