Rainbow Dance

In Rainbow Dance, Len Lye throws together live action footage of dancer Rupert Doone with riotous animation that makes use of multiple Direct Film techniques. A flood of candy-coloured stencilled and hand-painted imagery jostles all over the screen against an ever-changing background, before cutting at the end to an amusingly stiff promotion for the General Post Office’s banking service.
