David Anderson is one of the Uk’s leading animators, and in this collection his creative and technical range is given full rein. The program begins with Anderson’s BAFTA Award-winning debut film “Dreamland express” (1982) which captures the rich fantasy life of childhood. “Sweet disaster, dreamless sleep” (1986) is a poignant allegory on the theme of the nuclear nightmare. “Deadtime stories for big folk” is the title of a collaboration between Anderson and the novelist Russell Hoban, and a documentary on this includes the full versions of the two films involved, “Deadsy” (1989) and “Door” (1990). Both have won many awards and are powerful and disturbing pieces.
