Herbert Kosower

Face, The (1967) 16mm, color, 3 min

Genre: Animation, Experimental

Based on the original engravings of Piero Fornasetti. An animated bit of whimsy triggered by the premise that IDEAS lead to IDEAS. In what has been described as 'film absurdity' Kosower manipulates a soman's face into the bizarre and the beautiful. New York film critic Judith Crist said at the New York awards presentation that it was delightful to find such a whimsical and well-done film among the seriousness of so many other films in the festival. --H.
