What’s new?

The Girl with the Red Beret / La fille au béret rouge is now making the rounds of festivals around the world. Produced by the National Film Board of Canada, it is a lighthearted look at the vagaries of public transport, to the tune of the Kate and Anna McGarrigle song “Complainte pour Ste-Catherine”.

The Girl with the Red Beret / La fille au béret rouge  just received an honorable mention at the Ottawa Animation Festival! The red beret team pictured her: me, Anna McGarrigle and Judith Gruber-Stitzer.

Poster janet Perlman's master class at the Cinemathèque québécoise

On May 13th, 2023 I gave a master class at the Cinemathèque québécoise. I showed films, described my work process, my evolution as an artist, my influences, blew bubbles, and invited all to dance to African drums.

I’m working on Tiny Tiny Screens. Using archival educational footage, I imagine what might occur beyond the confines of the film frame. One of the highlights is a world-renowned typist who demonstrates her astonishing abilities.
