Fluke

USA, 1985 (MIFF 1987)

Director: Emily Breer

A barrage of images and scenes connected, in some sense, by nonsense. Fish fly onto the heads of men riding camels in a desert. A bear that can't get out of the frame by force of an optical printer. Dust, ants and flies animated on top of found live action footage. A similarly wild soundtrack.
