Airplane Glue, I Love You

USA, 1970 (MIFF 1971, Programme 3)

Director: Howard Lester

This film is part of a package of experimental shorts produced by student and independent filmmakers.

Through an administrative error, a professional hobby shop model-maker, a 30 year-old case of arrested development whose brain has turned to gelatin from sniffing too much aeroplane glue, is declared a truant and returned to the sixth grade.

Full of genuine comedy characters and situations.
