Summary "As critical interest has grown in the unique ways that art animation explores and depicts subjective experience--particularly in relation to desire, sexuality, social constructions of gender, confessional modes, fantasy and the animated documentary--this book offers detailed analysis of both the process and practice of key contemporary filmmakers, while also raising more general issues around the specificities of animation. Combining critical essays with interview material, visual mapping of the creative process, which can be both conscious and unconscious, consideration of the neglected issue of how the use of sound differs from that of conventional live-action, and filmmakers' critiques of each others' work, Animating the Unconscious: Desire, Sexuality and Animation aims to both provoke and illuminate via a multi-faceted approach."--P.
