Synopsis


The latest film from the award-winning animator Théodore Ushev depicts the maelstrom of anguish that tormented Arthur Lipsett, a famed Canadian experimental filmmaker who died at the age of 49. His descent into depression and madness is explored through a series of images as well as sounds taken from Lipsett's own work.

Theodore Ushev


Theodore Ushev (1968, Kyustendil, Bulgaria) graduated from the National Academy of Fine Arts in Sofia and began his career as a poster artist in his native country. In 1999 he settled in Montreal, where he quickly acquired a reputation as a prolific and talented animator owing to such films as The Man Who Waited (2006) and Tzaritza (2006). In 2006, he began work on an acclaimed trilogy on the relationship between art and power: Tower Bawher (2006), Drux Flux (2008) and Gloria Victoria (2013). His acclaimed shorts include Lipsett Diaries (2010), his best-known film and a 16-time award winner, Nightingales in December (2011) and Apart (2012).
