Chris James_After Beardsley (1981)
Что я нашла! Я нашла очень редкий и поистине потрясающий мультфильм о Бердсли. Из Хаммерсмита. Стивен Кэллоуэй, куратор музея V&A, рекомендует к просмотру. Он - автор комментариев, которые приведены под каждой частью.


Part 1.



The artist Aubrey Beardsley died in 1898 at the age of 25 from consumption (TB).
The film After Beardsley attempts to depict today's world through Beardsley's eyes and in his drawing style. Part 1 sets the scene by showing some of Beardsley's better known drawings, some of which take on a different guise later in the film, along with photographs of him, courtesy of the Victoria & Albert Museum. Written and drawn by Chris James, after Aubrey Beardsley. Music by Ronnie Fowler.


Part 2.


In Part 2, Beardsley is 'resurrected' from his death bed and begins to walk through time to the present. On his journey he witnesses the evolution of the car and of air and sea travel, then climbs a phallic mountain before descending into 20th century New York City. Part 3 reveals what he finds there... Written and drawn by Chris James, after Aubrey Beardsley. Music by Ronnie Fowler.

Part 3.


In Part 3 of the film, the ghost of Aubrey Beardsley explores the urban jungle of New York City where, amongst other things, he sees Bob Dylan as a satyr sitting by an iconic 1959 Chevy, and Lenny Bruce being injected with heroin. He is then beckoned by Patti Smith (as Beardsley's Messalina) into a hospital room where he finds himself hooked up to life support equipment. His hospital persona shows his ghost the horrors of the present day - overpopulation, pestilence starvation, and death. Via John Lennon, he sees the horrors of a nuclear winter. The premise of the film is that, if Beardsley had been alive today instead of the 1890s, modern medicine would have kept him alive, but that, having had a glimpse of where the world was heading, he may have chosen to die anyway. Written and drawn by Chris James, after Aubrey Beardsley. Music by Ronnie Fowler.
