The film is based on and inspired from the tinted brush drawings, sketches and some finished yet minimalistic works of the 18th century master miniature painter Nainsukh. Even in some of his finished paintings, the artist did not hide his corrections and afore-thoughts, which he allowed to show through a mostly untouched stark page. This film attempts the same.
In 1986, seventeen years after Yoko Ono and John Lennon’s animated conversation about love and six years after the beloved Beatle’s assassination, Ono commissioned independent animator John Canemaker to create a short animated film based on Lennon’s drawings, music, and interviews. Given her penchant for the intersection of art and philosophy, Lennon’s own quirky illustrations, and the odd fact that the couple’s love began in visual poetry long before they met, it was the perfect medium for commemoration.
Filmmaker Gideon Koppel's precursor to Sleep Furiously, A Sketchbook for the Library Van is, indeed, a preparatory rough-draft of the extraordinary feature-length documentary (which, at the time, was tentatively entitled The Library Van) addressing identical themes and featuring several of the same individuals. Sketchbook presents a rare and fascinating opportunity to see a film in its formative stage.
A hand drawn animation developed between 2000 and 2007, Field of Green was based on drawings made by Sky David (formerly known as Dennis Pies) during his tours in the United States Army during the Vietnam War between 1967 and 1970. The documentary animation relives these events and reenacts the major metal and bodily traumas that they caused, mixing animation with video footage and body motion.
