An legendary animator called Ryan Larkin

Syrinx (1965) by Ryan Larkin

During Thessaloniki DF, in his workshop Peter Wintonick has showed us a short film titled "Ryan" by Chris Landreth. That's how I heard about this wonderful animator. Then I got the chance to view two of his works thanks to Flickhead.

hi muse-r! thanks for the message... yes, Ghir Enta is great. the film which end with Souad Massi's song was "Insallah dimanche" by Yamina Benguigui. In the very same film there were songs by Idir as well, which I like very much also. no need to mention that all those names are Algerian! it's a weird coincidence but even my nick-name has something to do with Algeria, where I've never been yet...
and yes, the title is inspired by Vertov's "kino-eye"... I'm glad you like Rouch, especially Chronique d'un Ete.
keep in touch... and have a nice blogging!
