Review by Jonathan Toomey in Take One

review lady and the tooth take one cambridge film festival 2013

As part of an overview for the Screen Out Loud competition at Animated Exeter FestivalJonathan Toomey, has written a review in Take Oneabout “Lady and the Tooth”

Here are a few excerpts from the article:

“Screen Out Loud is host to a fantastic set of films from some new and some more well established animation talent. Most notable in this selection are a number of films that forego technical immaculacy in favour of artistic merit.

LADY AND THE TOOTH by Shaun Clark, is a grisly and perplexing animation about teeth and love. The film’s design is incredible, and exceedingly well considered as it compliments the narrative perfectly. The crudity in this animation is a joy to witness as it offers a refreshing change of pace from high gloss mainstream animation which replicates life without offering any insight.

Screen Out Loud is a showcase for some truly memorable and inspirational works which were a privilege to see together on the big screen. There were a lot of exciting ideas on display… “

Tabakalera

“Lady and the tooth” recently screened at  Tabakalera in northern Spain. Tabakalera is an  international contemporary culture centre containing Contemporary art, television, video and cinema, design and sound.

Since 2007 Tabakalera has organised a wide sort of activities. Exhibitions like Summer by Julian Schnabel (2007), No es Neutral (2008),Egiatik (2008) and Look Again (2009) as well as experimental shortfilm screenings like LABO, in collaboration with Clermont-Ferrand Festival.

 

The Lab competition is the place where people rush in to experience jarring films. Electrifying combinations, arresting viewpoints, accomplished risk-taking; Clermont-Ferrand’s Lab is the right prescription for visual addicts. Come get your fix, brought to you by artists dangerously in love with images and sounds.

Tabakalera opens its doors to the new Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival.

Thanks to the collaborative efforts of the Clermont-Ferrand Festival, Tabakalera and Donostia Kultura, which celebrates its sixth anniversary this year, from February 25th to March 2nd, 40 films included in the festival’s Labo experimental section will be screened in Tabakalera‘s cinema. The cycle includes a selection of experimental proposals, offering new and, on many occasions, disturbing points of view, as well as works verging on the edge of video-art or contemporary art, all located in this space in which the lines delimiting the different disciplines become increasingly blurred.
