Leisure (1976)

Bruce Petty's all too brief short film tells the remarkably complex history of man's relationship with and pursuit of leisure.    

Mixing hand-drawn animation and collage, Leisure won the Academy Award® for Best Animated Short in 1977 - the first Australian animated film to win an Oscar.
