Cartoon Carnival (BLU-RAY)


To many, the history of animation begins with a certain mouse, but in reality the story begins as soon as man first dreamed of somehow capturing the moving image. 'Cartoon Carnival' tells the story of the birth of the animated art-form and the fascinating characters who populated the animation industry both on and off screen during those experimental years.

Featuring beautifully preserved film clips, 'Cartoon Carnival' celebrates the magic era of silent animation and features interviews with animation directors, historians, and enthusiasts – including Jerry Beck, Howard Beckerman, Kevin Brownlow, John Canemaker, Peter Lord, and more! We also pay a visit to the modest New York home of collector Tommy José Stathes, where a treasure trove of overlooked film material is key to understanding the roots of animation as we know it today.

Ladies and gentleman, children of all ages, step right up for the 'Cartoon Carnival'!
