Down and Out

UK, 1980 (MIFF 1981)

Director: David Sproxton, Peter Lord

Another film in a series whose starting point is the sound track, made by pinning a radio microphone to the central character. The resulting "natural conversation" was edited to five minutes and the animator allowed free visual interpretation. This film is about the attempt by a "down and out" to get a meal in a Salvation Army hostel in the face of obstructive bureaucracy.
