About

This animated cartoon film, closely based on Apuleius’s moving story, is widely regarded as a masterpiece. Film animator Alison de Vere, who contributed to the Beatles’ Yellow Submarine in 1967, completed the 26 minutes long film for the British Channel 4 in 1994. Screened in the Museum’s Rotunda, the film provides a fascinating dialogue with the Baroque tapestries in an adjacent gallery.
