El Salon Mexico - The Movie
Paul Glickman and Tamarind Kingare unlikely creative collaborators. She's a young woman with wonderful talent as an artist. He's a retired New York filmmaker who had one project he still wanted to do. Together, they've made a 12-minute masterpiece - a fully-animated, hand-drawn cartoon to the score of Aaron Copland's El Salon Mexico. The story begins with a young boy, Antonito, who sneaks away from home with his friends, the chicken and the donkey, to a fiesta.
