A bitter animated joke about the frustration of being an artist in pay of the bureaucracy. A sculptor tries to impress officialdom with his most imaginative works, but does not make a hit - until the finale. The story is told with traditional animation, intercut with more experimental drawing to create geometric patterns. No narration, music and sound effects only.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
