ジャック・ドゥルーアン Jacques Drouin(b.1943、カナダ)

履歴:
It was at an animation exhibit in 1967 that Jacques Drouin first encountered the pinscreen, the ingenious apparatus invented by Alexandre Alexeieff and Claire Parker. It would change his life.
Born in 1943 in Mont-Joli, Quebec, Drouin spent several years at l'Ecole des Beaux Arts in Montreal before going off to study filmmaking at UCLA in California. As an apprentice with the Film Board in the early 1970s, he got to experiment with the pinscreen and made Trois exercices sur l'écran d'épingles d'Alexeieff. He followed this up with Mindscape (1976), a dreamlike film in which an artist steps into his own painting. This groundbreaking work won 18 international awards and was ranked 13th in a list of the world's best animated films chosen by a jury of experts in Los angeles in 1984.
In Nightangel, a film co-directed with Bretislav Pojar in 1986, Jacques Drouin incorporates the Czech filmmaker's puppets into his graphic environment. Ex-child, made in 1994 as part of the Rights from the Hearts collection, is a plea for children's rights, while the 2001 film A Hunting Lesson uses the pinscreen to great effect in capturing all the twists and turns of a dramatic tale by Jacques Godbout.
His latest film, Empreintes/Imprints (2004), is a purely sensory experience in which a rondo for harpsichord inspires a whirlwind of creativity on the pinscreen, the instrument of which Jacques Drouin is currently acknowledged as the world's master.
