Colour Flight

Loading the player...

Another example of Len Lye’s ability to turn an ad into a creative outlet, Colour Flight was commissioned by Imperial Airlines. Soundtracked by Cuban rumba and Dixieland jazz, the movement on screen answers directly to changes in the music. Showers of stencilled crescent moons, shooting stars, planets, birds and planes evoke the concept of flight.
