"Animation by Marcos Magalhaes" is a compilation of the works from animator
Marcos Magalhaes, including "Animando," a didactic film on animation
techniques -- a great introduction for every animation hopeful; "Meow!," a
funny political tale which won the Jury's Prize at the Cannes Film
Festival; "Mão-Mãe;" "Bull on the Track;" and "Precipitation." "Eight Point
Star" is the result of a unique experience in communicating the ideas of a
so-called "mentally disabled" person through the language of animation.
Animator Marcos Magalhaes, 38, worked with artist Fernando Diniz, 78,
inside a mental institution in Rio de Janeiro, to make Fernando's dream of
making a film come true. Both videos are available for sale individually,
or as a package. Respectively $19.95 and $11.95 plus shipping.
