FAIRY TALES EARLY COLOUR STENCIL FIMS FROM PATHÌÁ‰ۡ Once upon a time, during the belle ÌÁpoque in turn-of-the-century Paris, a short-lived film form called 'scÌÁå¬nes de feeries'('fairy films') were produced in great number by the Path̩ FrÌÁå¬res company. In jewel-like colours the films recreated the theatrical spectacles of the age with their fantastical settings, dancing girls, mythical beasts, supernatural brings and a plethora of stage illusion enhanced by the trickery of the new medium of film. Made to appeal to young and old spectators alike, these gorgeous films offer modern audiences a fascinating glimpse into the magical world of the nineteen-century theatre. Presented here with original hand-colouring, each film is accompanied with a newly-commissioned soundtrack composed by recording artists from the leading experimental music label Touch. Contributions from such acclaimed composers as Chris Watson, Fennesz, Hildur GuÌÁå¡nad̩ttir, Ryoji Ikeda, Philip Jeck, and BJNilsen combine with the beautiful images to create a unique and unforgettable experience.
