David Ehrlich: Citizen of the World
(Collection Image Par Image) Dreamland; 1st edition
2002, 143 pages. Paperback by Olivier Cotte
David Ehrlich is an independent animator teaching in the Film and Media Studies Department at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire. In the last forty years, he has made primarily independent abstract, animated films, garnering recognition from all corners of the international film world. This bilingual text is divided into four parts: a short, amusing biography of Ehrlich; a deep analysis of his filmography and style; a dialogue between Ehrlich and the author; and anecdotes and commentary from other directors and animators throughout the world. Accompanying the text are sixteen full-color pages and numerous black and white illustrations. These images are culled from Ehrlich's award-winning animation and from his personal collection of family photographs.
A creative collaboration by Dartmouth Animators: one last animation for David Ehrlich, who is retiring from the Dartmouth College Department of Film and Media Studies, where he will be dearly missed.
