Of Men and Demons

USA, 1969 (MIFF 1971, Programme 5)

Director: John Hubley, Faith Hubley

Made by the famed husband and wife team, John and Faith Hubley, this is a satirical allegory of man's constant battle with his changing environment.

In the beginning a man and his wife lead a peaceful existence on an island - growing food and gathering fish from the sea. But how long can such an idyll last?

Silver Medal and Diploma. Venice 1970
