John Lennon animated interview/L’intervista animata a John Lennon

(EN) In 1969, a 14-year-old Beatle fanatic named Jerry Levitan, armed with a reel-to-reel tape deck, snuck into John Lennon’s hotel room in Toronto and convinced John to do an interview about peace. 38 years later, Jerry has produced an animated film about it: “I met the Walrus”, Oscar Nominated. Using the original interview recording as the soundtrack, director Josh Raskin has woven a visual narrative which tenderly romances Lennon’s every word in a cascading flood of multipronged animation. Pen drawings by James Braithwaite and digital illustrations by Alex Kurina. Graphic animation is exploring new fascinating applications and Lennon’s words become even more part of nowadays political life.

(IT) Nel 1969 il quattordicenne Jerry Levitan, fun dei Beatles, armato di un registratore a nastro si è intrufolato nella stanza d’albergo in cui stava John Lennon e l’ha convinto a rilasciargli un’intervista sulla pace. 38 anni dopo Jerry ha prodotto il film animato nominato agli Oscar “I met the Walrus” che ha donato una narrazione visiva alle parole di Lennon attraverso il talento degli illustratori James Braithwaite e Alex Kurina. La grafica animata sta esplorando nuove applicazioni e in questo caso rende le parole di John Lennon ancora più contemporanee.
