This spring, we’re presenting a highly saturated series of Technicolor marvels. From toe-tapping musicals and experimental animations to tragic love stories and comic confections, Technicolor provided the technical and artistic means for some of the most vivid images in film history. Transportive, delirious and highly expressive, this is cinema at its most fever-pitched.
