1999_Fool’s Fire: The Genius of Julie Taymor

Best known for her visually stunning and emotionally powerful direction of The Lion King on Broadway, Julie Taymor brings her boundless imagination to directing and designing productions ranging from theater to opera and film. This exhibition of masks and puppets offers a rare look behind the scenes of Taymor’s genius in her first film, Fools Fire, based on the Edgar Allan Poe short story “HopFrog.” Taymor conceived, directed and designed the costumes and puppetry for Fools Fire, which premiered at the American Film Festival in Park City and aired on PBS in March 1992. The film won the “Best Drama” award at the Tokyo International Electronic Cinema Festival.
