'Pas de deux', a stunning meditation on form and movement considered by many to be McLaren's masterpiece, was created by photographing backlit dancers dressed in white against a black backdrop. McLaren then used an optical printer to expose individual frames up to 11 times.
It won 20 awards, nationally and internationally, including a special Canadian Film Award for exceptional quality and awards at festivals in Melbourne, Locarno, Buenos Aires, Chicago, New York and London, England, as well as receiving a nomination for the 1968 Academy Award for best live action short.
