Short and Suite

– Norman McLaren & Evelyn Lambart (1959)

A color cocktail by Norman McLaren and Evelyn Lambart, translating into moving patterns of color and light the moods of music written for a jazz ensemble by Eldon Rathburn. Inscribed and colored directly on film.


  1. I don’t know for certain, but that’s a great question. I know most of them were produced by the National Film Board of Canada, so it’s possible that they were only shown in Canada. Now I’m curious as well. 🙂

  2. All of this older stuff like this…where was it played at? At the time? Was it a short between pictures? It’s awesome, especially for that time…and is now.

What's on your mind?
