Grant Munro Rediscovered

On the occasion of Grant Munro's 80th birthday and the release of a new DVD, Cut-Up, The Films of Grant Munro, The Museum of Modern Art pays tribute to this seminal but under-recognized animator. Working from within the historic Animation Unit of the National Film Board of Canada from 1945 through the early 1970s, Munro directed, produced, shot, edited and even acted in some of the most significant hand-drawn and pixilated animation ever made. A frequent collaborator with Norman McLaren, Munro brought a wicked wit and sublime grace to the art. Grant Munro Rediscovered Retrospective program will feature two unreleased, recently re-edited films -- ON THE FARM (1951/2003) and SIX AND SEVEN-EIGHTHS (1959/2003) -- as well as George Dunning's THREE BLIND MICE (1945), Norman McLaren's NEIGHBORS (1952), Stanley Jackson's THE BALLOTT-O-MATIC (1953), Munro and McLaren's CANON (1964), Munro's TOYS (1966), Munro's BOO HOO (1975), and MCLAREN ON MCLAREN (1983). The program will begin at 6:00 p.m. For more info call: (212) 708-9847 or visit
