Robert Breer

Painter, filmmaker and creator of kinetic sculptures and mutoscopes, Robert Breer has stood out for his experimental animation. Self-taught filmmaker, he created his first pieces driven by his interest for providing his paintings with movement. Bree, an American in Paris, experienced the European avant-gardes and, back in the United States, the underground cinema and Pop Art. Deprived of a conventional narrative, his films included, as time passed by, figurative elements, free traces. This session combines his most outstanding films with three short documentaries about his works.
