Le merle (The Blackbird)

Director: Norman McLaren Year: 1958 Run Time: 4min

In this NFB animation, Norman McLaren imparts unusual activity to an old French-Canadian nonsense song. Simple white cut-outs on pastel backgrounds, many by Evelyn Lambart, provide lively illustrations. The folksong "Mon Merle" is sung in French by the Trio Lyrique of Montreal.
