Marie-Josée Saint-Pierre’s McLaren’s Negatives is an animated documentary that shares the secrets of the legendary Canadian animator Norman McLaren and his personal view of filmmaking. Saint-Pierre’s visual essay reveals a new approach to documentary film that blurs the lines between documentary and drama as she offers an intimate look at McLaren’s cinematographic creation.

McLaren’s Negatives will screen alongside the National Film Board’s McLaren Retrospective of eleven animated shorts.
