The Classical Animated Documentary and Its Contemporary Evolution (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

The Classical Animated Documentary and Its Contemporary Evolution is the first book to provide an historical insight into the animated documentary.



Drawing on archival research and textual analysis, it shows how this form, usually believed to be strictly contemporaneous, instead took shape in the 1940s. Cristina Formenti integrates a theoretical and a historical approach in order to shed new light on the animated documentary as a form as well as on the work of renowned studios such as The Walt Disney Studios, Halas & Batchelor, National Film Board of Canada and never before addressed ones as Corona Cinematografica. She also highlights the differences and the similarities existing among the animated documentaries created between the 1940s and the mid 1980s and those produced today, so as to demonstrate how the latter do not represent a complete otherness in respect to the former, but rather an evolution.
