Norman McLaren’s first film for the NFB was this publicity clip for Canada Post. Non-abstract symbols drawn with pen on clear 35 mm stock were superimposed on a photographed painted background. Benny Goodman’s rendition of Jingle Bells provided the sound.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
