Buzz Wray and his Telephone

Canada, 1980 (MIFF 1980, Programme 35)

Director: J. Wayne Sterloff

This is "the first film ever to use the Aniscope Process, a newly invented system of comic-book-like animation originating from live-action footage". Th estory is set in a distant and eclectic future. The good guys, Buzz and Weiner, try to enlist the aid of the muses as they chase the bad guy, Science, through at least nine dimensions! Science has kidnapped the Poets who are in an atomic stupor, a kind of inspirational frenzy. If they are disturbed before their inspirational cycle is complete, mankind is doomed.
