Black Gold / Or noir
Aimée van Drimmelen's Black Gold employs
hand-drawn animation layered over stop-motion sequences of moving ink on
drumskins to create a striking, mournful portrait of the Alberta tar sands.
Created in a cabin in Saskatchewan, this is Aimée's first animated film.
This animated short was made for Hothouse 7, the NFB’s program for emerging filmmakers, whose central theme was “Here Be Dragons”.
